Call For Submissions: Lummox 6 Poetry Anthology & Contest


A carrion call from RD Armstrong, editor and publisher of Lummox Press:

It's time to answer the CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS!
   This year's Lummox Poetry Anthology has no theme..nor does the poetry contest.
   Guidelines can be found at this link (PLEASE READ ALL THE GUIDELINES BEFORE SUBMITTING).
   LUMMOX #6 is also looking for illustrations, collages, artwork of all kinds (unfortunately we only pay in a contributor copy).
   This year's Lummox Poetry Contest offers a $100 cash prize plus 40 copies of a chapbook that Lummox Press will publish for the winner, plus a mini feature in Lummox #6. Guidelines for the contest: here (again, please read ALL of the explanations). There is a $15 Reading Fee, payable via the PayPal button.at the top of the website's welcome page.
   The Winner and 2nd & 3rd place will be selected by poet and teacher, Judith Skillman.
   Poets who are in 2nd and 3rd place will be part of the mini feature, plus they will receive a copy of the chapbook, and they'll also get a cool coffee cup to further inspire them next year.
   Send your poems to RD Armstrong.
   Last year's ISMS issue(Lummox #5) was a successful issue (in spite of the elections)  and it contained poetry from across the US, Canada, the UK, Italy, Australia and Nepal!
   Lummox Press also publishes poetry collections from small to large (24 to 300+ pages). In addition to that, we also publish anthologies and works of an experimental nature, so pitch your idea to RD Armstrong..."One of the most open-minded editors around" (according to Nancy Shiffrin). All these titles are accessible at the website along with Lummox t-shirts, mugs and other goodies (they make great stocking stuffers)! Support your local Lummox!
