Werk: Poems for Drag Race
Calling all Queens!! Pageant Queens, Comedy Queens, Messy Queens, and Manly Queens!
I want your poems inspired by the world of Rupaul’s Drag Race for a new anthology! Whether it is a sonnet to your favourite winner, an ode to the pit crew, or a free verse exploration of time and space in the style of Ms Laganja Estranga. Form doesn’t matter, just make it werk.
Poems must be original and unpublished in print or online. Simultaneous submissions are fine, just email again if they get snapped up before I get to them.
I setting up a very very very small new press called House of Eddus. This anthology will be my first project, but I am brimming with ideas for future anthologies. I aim to donate a proportion of the profits from this anthology to LGBTQ charities.
My aim for this anthology is to showcase the incredible talent that is out there in the poetry world, as well as paying homage to the beautiful world of Drag Race, and earning some much needed funds for LGBTQ Charities.
I’ll also be looking to commission an illustrator to create an arresting and beautiful cover for our anthology, so please contact me if you’d like to do that. This will be a PAID GIG.
Please send me a maximum of three poems to:
Poems in the body of an email or as Word or PDF attachment. Please also include a short biography and the name of your favourite queen!
Deadline for submissions is 31st August 2019
Everybody Say Love,
House of Eddus
