SCHEDULED FOR PUBLICATION IN JUNE OF 2015.
Songs for a Passbook Torch: Hands UP, edited by Truth Thomas and Melanie Henderson, will explore and celebrate the life of the late anti-Apartheid freedom fighter, Nelson Mandela and more...
Submit up to five previously unpublished poems to:
songsforapassbooktorchATgmailDOTcom (Change AT to @ and DOT to . )
All work submitted should have some relationship to Nelson Mandela, Winnie Mandela, the Mandela family, and/or the past and present fight for racial justice in South Africa. In light of the ongoing lynchings of people of color in the United States, we are broadening the scope of this call. We are also calling for poetry and essays (3,000 word limit) that address the similarities between the systematic murder of black people by police in South Africa, and the pathological murder of black people by police in America.
Payment will be in the form of one contributor's copy. Please direct questions to:

The submission period for this anthology is currently open ended. Decisions for inclusion in the anthology will be made on a rolling basis.
