Popshot

For an opportunity to have your poems published AND illustrated...this biannual UK based magazine is currently open for submissions. Here's what they have to say...

Each issue of Popshot contains a collection of poems written to a theme. These selected poems are individually sent out to a collection of illustrators who illustrate the poems according to their interpretation of the piece. These illustrations are then bound together with the poems to create a beautiful volume of literary and artistic goodness.
Guidelines: Poems must be 25 lines or less and written to the theme (Power). Send no more than 3 poems. We look for original, succinct, and thought provoking poetry - the kind that will allow our readers to see the subject in a way that they may not have otherwise considered. Poems with a focus on rhythm, repetition and pattern are preferred but this definitely doesn't mean obscure free verse is overlooked. Please include a paragraph or two about yourself, a short description of the poem, why you came to write it, and what it means to you.
Deadline: January 25th 2012 For more info click HERE

Other up coming deadlines include The Ballymaloe Poetry Prize and the Doire Poetry & Fiction Chapbook Competition, and of course, there's something else... something that doesn't involve writing... nah, it's gone. Can't of been that important:)
