Call for Submissions: Court Green No. 11

Court Green No. 11 (Dossier: James Schuyler)

Court Green is a poetry journal published annually in association with the Department of English at Columbia College Chicago and is edited by CM Burroughs, Tony Trigilio, and David Trinidad.

Each issue of Court Green features a dossier on a special topic or theme. For our 11th issue, we are seeking creative responses to the work, life, and legacy of James Schuyler. Schuyler, a central figure in the New York School, is often associated with fellow New York School poets John Ashbery, Frank O'Hara, Kenneth Koch, and Barbara Guest. Since his death in 1991, his work has continued to attract an ever-increasing and devoted audience. For this dossier, we would like to see fresh takes on and responses to Schuyler's life and work, however subtle or overt, in poetry and short lyric essays or prose. We expect to see short lines and long lines, urban and rural landscapes, poems that freely espouse, that salute that various field, that imitate Schuyler's inimitable intimism. All styles are welcome. We are not looking for critical/academic work at this time.

We are reading submissions now through June 30, 2013. We do not accept more than one submission per poet during our submission/reading period. Please note that we do not accept more than five pages of poetry (one poem per page). We will respond by August 31. Submit to:

600 South Michigan Avenue

Email submissions are not accepted. Please supply a SASE for notification only. Submissions will not be returned. Poems submitted outside our reading period will be returned unread.
