Call for Submissions: "The Moment of Change" Anthology of Feminist Speculative Poetry (Aqueduct press)

Post date: 16 April 2011
Deadline: 15 June 2011

Rose Lemberg is currently editing "The Moment of Change," a feminist speculative poetry anthology for Aqueduct press.

This anthology will bring feminist questions to the foreground, while featuring queer poets, poets of color, and international poets as much as possible. This will be the first feminist anthology within the history of speculative poetry.

To this end, the editor would like to solicit reprint submissions at the editorial address, feministspec at gmail dot com. Submissions are not limited by gender and sexuality, age, race and ethnicity, disability, immigration status, etc - everyone is welcome. Please send your previously published poems that you think are feminist (maximum 5 poems per submission, please). Date of original publication does not matter, but please supply the previous publication details for each poem.

The following are considered: fantasy, science fiction, magic realism, surrealism, weird, and slipstream.

If you have ideas for poems by others that can fit the anthology, please let the editor know at the editorial address (feministspec at gmail dot com).

Rights: We ask for non-exclusive one-time reprint rights, non-exclusive promotional rights, and non-exclusive ebook reprint rights. These rights should be available when you send me your submissions (i.e. if the poem is under exclusivity period somewhere, that would be problematic).

Payment: one copy per contributor.

Submissions are open now, and will remain open until June 15th, 2011. I will respond to all submissions by July 15th, 2011.
