Call for Submissions for Come Together: Imagine Peace

COME TOGETHER: IMAGINE PEACE, edited by Ann Smith and Larry Smith in the Harmony Series from Bottom Dog Press.

We are seeking poems (1-3) and short prose (up to 500 words) that image peace, nonviolence, reconciliation, compassion, hope. We believe it essential for ourselves and our children to keep this image alive and before us. We look for writing grounded in the world yet positive and visionary. It can have war images, but it must also have images of peace. Fine examples can be found throughout literature: Wendell Berry’s “The Peace of Wild Things,” James Wright’s “The Blessing,” the many Nature poems of Mary Oliver, W.S. Merwin, the compassionate works of Denise Levertov and others. Come together to share your image of peace and caring. Send typed work (reprint ok with documentation; no e-mail submissions) and SASE to: Bottom Dog Press—Imagine Peace/ PO Box 425/ Huron, OH 44839 by May 15, 2008. Payment is 2 copies, $10, the world’s thanks.
