Time for a Little Ordo ab Chao-

shelley quote1

With the tumultuous climate in the world, it occurs to us that there’s no time better to announce a poetry anthology!

Since April is approaching, and spring along with it, we hope to compile a poetry anthology in the interval, and provide some beauty, liberty and elegance of phrase to the melee.

We are including long and short poetic works on any subject, provided the content is of aPG-13 sort of calibre, and free from choleric discourse, please.

Meter is open-ended; we encourage exploration into a variety of poetic styles beyond the standard, 21st Century styles.

We have sixteen contributors’ spots available, with up to three contributions each.

Those poets selected for inclusion in our poetry anthology will be promoted through StarkLight Press and its social media and print media networks. Interviews with our poets will be included as part of our online promotion of this work.

 

To that end, here are some links to some great lists of poetic styles:

Don’t break your brain with these entrancing poetic styles- heart before style any day!

Please send queries or submissions to starklightdesk@gmail.com, along with a brief bio and/or links to your websites.

Our submission call ends May 15, 2019, or when our sixteen slots are filled. However, poetic submissions will also be considered for our subsequent anthologies, as well as slots in our StarkLight Short Story series.

Voices Heard

StarkLight Press would like to announce the beginning of a very special project, Voices Heard.

This anthology will feature 100 authors who have suffered a violent crime- one for which they have not found justice. Each author will be given 3 pages in the anthology to arrange as they like: photos, artwork, poems, journal entries, essays, creative writing. In three pages, we invite these survivors of crime to explore and explain not just their experience, but the experience of not having been adequately heard by the world around them.

Please feel free to contact us at starklightdesk@gmail.com with a brief overview (200-1000 words) about why you would be a good fit for this anthology. The first 100 appropriate artists and writers will be chosen for this anthology, the proceeds of which go to anti-violence charities in North America.

We thank you in advance for your interest in this very special project, and invite you to share it with organizations and individuals for whom you think it would be useful.
