Publisher Haymarket Books is calling for contemporary poems by Palestinian-identifying poets for a new anthology:
The anthology is edited by George Abraham and Noor Hindi. Submissions of translations and of works incorporating multiple languages are explicitely encouraged. The editors suggest as potential threads of exploration:
Palestinian futurity, hybrid and multi-lingual forms, experimental poetics, ecopoems, speculative poetics, permission to narrate/counter-narrate, Palestinian body, bio- and necro- politics, poetic lineage, queer poetics, collective-oriented poems, and Palestinian poetics re-thinking communal relations.
Only submissions by Palestinian-identifying writers and by translators translating work by Palestinian-identifying writers will be read.
Please include in your submission:
- 3–5 poems in a single document;
- a cover letter (max. 150 words) introducing yourself and your relationship to Palestine;
- a short bio (50 words);
- translation permission from the rights holder, if applicable.
