Last I had talked to this editor, she had received hardly any submissions… you still have a week to write and submit! Get those poems in and support this incredible project.
You may have seen posts and commentary on the recent poem “Scowl” by Jay Sizemore published by Revolution John. The site has since gone offline, but lit mag Thank You for Swallowing is planning to publish a special edition series of response poems. Response poems should be based on “a well-known poem, the more familiar the better. Can be written by a Dead White Male, does not have to be. Use its form and structure to craft your response. We want subversion and irony. Because we actually know what irony means.”
They are also offering to reprint poems which were originally published on Revolution John.
DEADLINE: September 30, 2015
NOTES: Submissions are accepted via email only.
