Full Title: “Open Call for Poetry Submissions for January’s Edition of ‘Bushwick Bohemia Beat Poetry’ (via Bushwick Daily)”
Open to residents and natives of the Bushwick section of Brooklyn, NY.
We’re announcing an open call for poetry submissions for our January installment of “Bushwick Bohemia Beat Poetry” curated by award-winning and Bushwick-born poet, Emanuel Xavier. The series features poems by local Bushwick residents and/or natives.
If you would like to be featured next month, send two to three poems (10 pages max) to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “Bushwick Bohemia Beat Poetry Submission.”
Poems should be attached as Word documents, 10 point, Times New Roman font, double-spaced and formatted as they should appear on the site if selected. Please include a brief 3-5 sentence bio and your personal connection to Bushwick with your current mailing address for verification. If submitting previously published work, please include appropriate publication credits. You’ll only receive an email if your poem is selected for publication.
Submissions are due by January 12, 2018 and the selected entry will be published in the final week of the month.
Poems can be about anything at all, but contributors must currently live within the Bushwick area or have been born or raised in the neighborhood.
