It is our contention that Hopkins’s poetry has influenced poets of succeeding gener...ations at least as much as the high modernism that is often held up as the dominant forerunner of contemporary poetry and that poets continue to respond to his poetry’s beautiful strangeness, spiritual themes, and groundbreaking uses of language and sound.
We seek a broad range of submissions: poems that mention Hopkins or respond to specific Hopkins poems, poems that engage with Hopkins’s ideas directly, poems that stylistically derive from Hopkins’s poetics, and even excellent pastiches of his work.
There is no reading fee. All submissions must be sent as e-mail attachments to email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org in one of the following formats: MS Word 1997-2003 (.doc), MS Word 2007/2010 (.docx); Rich Text Format (.rtf); or Portable Digital Format (.pdf). Please include a short (75-100 word) bio as a separate attachment in one of the above formats. Any questions should be directed to William Wright, at email@example.com.
Deadline for submissions is JUNE 15, 2013.
