DUETDUET is an experiment in blind dates and/or happy accidents publishing equal amounts of work from two separate authors (perhaps strangers), oriented in opposite directions. the results are curiously perfect hot air balloons.
if you’d be interested in seeing your poems dance, row a tiny boat, and/or make shapes with another’s, send 5-8 pages worth of work either stand-alone, short series or a longer piece along with a bio to firstname.lastname@example.org with ‘DUETDUET’ somewhere in the subject line.
gritty silk is an annual online journal of collaborative work with an interest in the break down of singular authorship and the development of functional creative exchange within a “poetic” community. our tastes at the outset are most bent toward the wonderfully surreal but tactile: work which re-envisions the mundane, explores outsider status and alternative voice(s), and/or refuses overtly rational ideas of “meaning” found in easily digestible artistic production. we are asking for collaborative poetry, poetic prose, fictional hybrids, visual work, sound play or any other experimental forms you might be inspired to sculpt with one another. we encourage you to explore experimental formats (whatever that phrase inspires within you) to allow form and structure to mirror and augment voice, intent and resonance. but foremost, do it with someone(s) else.
please submit 1-5 pieces of collaborative poetry, poetic prose, fictional hybrids, visual work, sound play or any other experimental forms along with a creative but concise collective bio. submissions should be sent to email@example.com with ‘gritty silk’ somewhere in the subject line.
SUBMISSIONS FOR GRITTY SILK: ISSUE THREE ARE CURRENTLY A PRIORITY.
pitymilk chapbook series
pitymilk is predominately interested in hybrid, experimental, and collaborative forms. we like work that does not rely on normalized poetic interpretation or aesthetic; strange, little beauties. we are committed to providing space and support for marginalized voices and are foremost interested in the work of non-cis-white-hetero-male voices.
chapbooks will be produced in edition of 100 handmade and hand bound books likely accompanied by illustrations and visuals.
please send your manuscript of about 15-25 pages along with a bio to firstname.lastname@example.org with ‘chapbook submission’ somewhere in the subject line.
