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:)
