Poems from Pandemia – an anthology callout

Deadline: 31 Aug 2020

Pandemia being a land or planet whose name derives from the word pandemic.

This anthology is looking for poems of hope or its lack which are about Covid-19 or an historical / fantasy plague; poems which are autobiographical/confessional or surreal/allegorical.

Poems have already commissioned from over thirty poets including Martín Espada, Eilean Ní Chuilleanáin, Rigoberto González, Sandra Beasley, Thomas McCarthy, Kim Moore, Peter Sirr, Rachel Allen, Brian Turner, Paula Bohince, David Harsent and many more.

This is your chance to be included in an anthology with such distinguished names. Twenty poems will be sourced from unsolicited submissions. Selected poets will be paid €150.

There is a €12 reading fee for a maximum of three poems. All submitters will receive a complementary copy of the anthology in November.

Send (through Submittable) a single word document with up to three on topic poems with a bio note and the address to which you would like your copy of the anthology sent.
