Many thanks to Indolent Books and their poem-a-day series What Rough Beast–Covid-19 Edition for publishing my new prose poem "I want to order room service.” Indolent Books is a small independent press founded in 2015 and operating in Brooklyn, N.Y. They publish print books and sometimes run online poetry features on the Indolent Books website or on project-based websites such as the HIV Here & Now project. Their poetic values include diversity, inclusion, innovation, provocation, and risk. They are currently accepting submissions for their two What Rough Beast online projects via Submittable. There is no fee to submit.
DEADLINE: Ongoing for poetry online projects
THEMES: Covid-19, social justice
SUBMISSION FEE: None
FORMAT: digitally online
SUBMISSION METHOD: Submittable
NOTES: “This is a poem-a-day series, and as we work our way through the Submittable queue, we pick a poem and post it immediately without notifying the author beforehand. You’ll get your acceptance email via Submittable within a few minutes of the poem being posted, but not in advance of the poem being posted. Please be sure you are comfortable with that modus operandi when you decided to submit work.” In other words, no simultaneous submissions.
