Jessy Randall will guest-edit the February 2014 issue of the online poetry magazine Snakeskin. This year, the theme will be POETRY COMICS. Jessy says:
The genre (if it is one) of poetry comics can be hard to define. The examples below may be more useful than my description. In general, poetry comics are poem-like hand-drawn combinations of text and image, not necessarily well-drawn or funny, though sometimes both. In my opinion, Kenneth Koch was an early practitioner and perhaps invented the idea of poetry comics. These links give examples:

If you think you might be making poetry comics, even if your definition doesn’t match mine, please send 1-5 images (single panel or multi-panel or whatever – the count won’t be strict) to:
jessyrandallATyahooDOTcom (Change AT to @ and DOT to .)
Previously-published comics are fine – just say where they first appeared. Simultaneous submissions are allowed. Attachments should be jpegs or pdfs. The deadline is December 1.
