Call for Poetry Submissions: Fall 2012 Issue

We are seeking previously unpublished poems from women over sixty who currently live outside the United States. The winning poems will be published in the Fall 2012 issue, appearing online Sept. 15, 2012.

We’re pleased to announce that Fleda Brown (fleda@english.udel.edu) will be the guest poetry editor for this issue. She will select the poems for publication from the entries she receives.

The email address and guidelines for this poetry section are different from the magazine’s general address and guidelines. Poetry manuscripts must use the following guidelines to be considered:

— Your poem(s) must be previously unpublished. They should be emailed between April 15-June 15, 2012 to our guest editor, Fleda Brown (fleda@english.udel.edu). Any that arrive earlier or later at this email address will not be read. Poems sent directly to Persimmon Tree will not be forwarded.

— Include 1-3 poems in a single WORD attachment. No poem may be longer than a page; use 12 point type.

— In the subject line of the email message, type POETRY FOR PT. In the body of the message, include your name, email address, phone number, and postal mailing address. Also include the titles of the poems that you have included in the attachment.

— If you send a submission that fails to follow the above guidelines, it will be automatically deleted. You will not be notified.
