It Was Written: Poetry Inspired by Hip-Hop
This anthology will be one of the first that focuses on poets who use hip-hop culture in their works. We believe this collection will fill a major void in the discussion of music and poetry. We want poems that engage or reference hip-hop in a variety of ways, from the music and artists to the clothing, dancing, and culture as a whole. We also hope to see a variety of poetic forms. We hope this anthology will be a valuable teaching tool and a resource for writers, readers, and fans of either genre (poetry or hip-hop).
We ask that poets submit their work here.
Poets are asked to submit 2-4 poems in a single document. Submissions will close on December 31, 2013. If a poet’s work is selected for inclusion in the anthology, we will then ask for an accompanying process note and writing prompt to go along with the work.
Any questions about the submission process should be directed to:
