      Dear Poetry Colleague:

      I'd like to invite you to contribute work to an anthology of television poems that I'm editing. Poets Wear Prada, a NJ-based press, is the publisher. We're projecting release in 2013.

      Contributors to date include Billy Collins, Dorianne Laux, Ron Padgett and David Trinidad.

      There are anthologies of movie poems and music poems. As far as I've been able to determine, there are no anthologies of poetry about a medium that has affected our language, our perceptions of the world, our politics, our economy, our opinions, and our tastes and interests.

      If this project interests you, please sen d up to three poems, five pages maximum, to <tvpoems(at)yahoo.com> (replace (at) with @ in sending email). The deadline is Sept. 30. Previously published work is eligible, as long as you retain the rights.

      Information about me is available at www.joelallegretti.com.

      Please don't send work on the following topics, as I've already accepted poems covering them:
