Call for Submissions: KSE “Last Poems”

Filed under: Uncategorized — kendrasteinereditions @ 10:42 am

note: I sent the following message out on myspace and also to five different poetry listservs last night. Please pass this call for submissions along to anyone you think might be interested. Thanks… The deadline for submissions is September 15th.


Adapting an idea from the late great Ted Berrigan, if you had six hours to live and could write just one final poem in that time, what would it be?
Kendra Steiner Editions would like to publish some of those “last poems”
in a small eight-poem collection later this year.
Poems submitted should be between 12 and 30 lines. One poem per person.
Give your piece a title of 5 or fewer words.
Submit via an attachment in Microsoft Word to django5722 (at) yahoo (dot) com with the phrase LAST POEM in the subject line.
No prose poems or love poems, please.
Payment will be 5 author copies. Deadline is September 15th.
Only those poets selected will be contacted. If you don’t hear back by October 1st, then your piece was not chosen. Please provide a mailing address with all submissions. Poems should not have appeared online or in print and should not be under consideration elsewhere. Newly written pieces are encouraged.
Many thanks.
Please re-post this message as you see fit.
If enough quality material is submitted, we may extend this “last poems”
concept to more than one collection. Those who value the work of Paul Blackburn, Frank Samperi, Lewis MacAdams, Diane Wakoski, Stuart Z. Perkoff, William Wantling, Doug Draime, Ronald Baatz, etc. should definitely submit.
Thanks in advance.
