QuillsEdge Press Announces Fifty Over Fifty Anthology
QuillsEdge Press, expanding on our mission of bringing to the page more of the vital poetry of women over fifty, is pleased to announce a new and vibrant anthology of women’s voices in poetry. We welcome submissions by new and emerging poets and especially encourage members of under-represented communities to send their work.
Entrants may submit up to six previously unpublished poems via Submittable, no more than six pages of poetry total. Simultaneous submissions are accepted. There is no set theme. Any poet who self-identifies as a woman and is at least 50 years old is eligible to submit to the anthology. Poetry translated into English is welcome, so long as the original poet is also a woman over the age of 50.
In lieu of a traditional bio, submitters are asked to include up to 75 words regarding “Why Poetry,” a personal note about the importance of poetry to you at this time in your life.
The reading period is March 22– September 22, 2017. Anticipated publication is December 2017. Submission fees vary according to income. Poets whose work is accepted will receive a contributor’s copy of the anthology as well as the ability to order additional copies at heavily discounted pricing.
For fees and detailed submission guidelines, please visit QuillsEdge Press on Submittable.
Thank you for considering our Press; we're excited to read your work!
