      Birdsong Micropress Summer 2011 Poetry + Prose Contest [Deadline: 18
      April 2011]
      http://www.birdsongmag.com/contest/


      New York literary zine birdsong is now accepting submissions for our
      Summer 2011 Poetry + Prose Contest. A prize of $50, publication in
      birdsong #15, 10 complimentary copies of the zine (edition of 300, full
      color, screenprinted cover), and a featured spot in our Brooklyn
      reading series in mid-June will be awarded a single person in each
      category. Submit a 12 pt. standard font .doc file of up to three pages
      of poetry, or 1500 words of double-spaced prose, to
      birdsongmag(at)gmail.com with the subject header, “ATTN: Summer Contest
      Submission” by Monday, April 18. No reading fee.

      Birdsong Collective members will review entries, and results will be
      e-mailed by Monday, May 9. Please include a cover page with your name,
      contact information, title(s) of the work, and a three-sentence bio to
      appear in the “Contributors” section of the zine. Entries will be
      considered anonymously, so your name should not appear on the work
      itself. All work should be previously unpublished. Simultaneous
      submissions are acceptable, as long as we receive immediate
      notification if entries are accepted elsewhere. One entry per person.
      The Birdsong Reading Series is an integral part of birdsong’s
      publication process, and as such, if you do not live in the New York
      area or cannot be here in mid-June, you may wish to reconsider
      submitting your work.
      Contest winners will retain all rights to their work, including the
      right to be identified as the author wherever and whenever their work
      is published, and the right to use all or part of their work, with or
      without revision or modification in compilations or other publications.
      Subsequent publication should acknowledge birdsong as the original
      publisher. Regular contributors to birdsong and previous contest
      winners are ineligible for entry.
      The Birdsong Collective and Micropress were founded in April 2008 with
      four goals in mind: to foster sustained collaboration amongst artists,
      musicians and writers in the form of an ongoing workshop; to
      continually encourage each other to produce creative work; to host
      free, public events where members can showcase works in progress; and
      to circulate members’ creative endeavors in a low-cost, easy to
      reproduce, and high-frequency format. Birdsong members share
      commitments to social movements of feminism, anti-racism, queer
      positivity, class-consciousness, and DIY cultural production. These
      commitments inform our creative work in many ways, ranging from the
      concrete to the theoretical to the experimental.
