- Call for Submissions:
E-mail: multicultimix(at)stu.edu (replace (at) with @)
Deadline: November 25, 2009
Book Title: Multi-Culti Mixterations, Edited by Judith Bachay and Issac Carter, Graphic Design, Richard McNab.
Mixterations describes the noun which we define as the experience or phenomenon that results from multiple iterations influenced by cultural context. Spanglish is an example of a Multi Cultural mixteration.
We are interested in shorter forms of formal, original and previously unpublished poetry, especially Haiku. Submissions must be no longer than a Sestina.
We look for Haiku that evokes emotion – of all kinds, 5-7-5, written in English but reflecting the cultural experiences of the world community . Editors are exploring the intersection of culture and identity through imagery that makes us laugh, gets us angry, tugs at our hearts, challenges our belief systems and world views, or better, makes us hungry, lonely, or joyful.
Please submit no more than 5 poems within the body of the email; no attached files.
Please include in subject line, name, address and email address of author. If the author is under 21, please list age. The book will be sold on Amazon, and proceeds will be donated to a student fund in the School of Theology and Ministry at St. Thomas University , Miami Gardens, Florida.
