Popular Culture + Poetry

Here’s an interesting call for submissions for poets. (I can already envision my “Ode to Project Runway”!)--

Umbrella, the supremely rereadable electronic journal, is now reading for our winter issue, online December 1st. Guidelines are here. In addition to reading works of a general nature, our theme for the Winter edition will be popular culture. Movies, TV shows, music, fashions, trends, pop icons and iconography: intrigue us with poems that recognize the depths beneath the shallows. Deadline: November 10, 2008.

And if you scroll down in the guidelines, you’ll see that they’re also looking for umbrella artwork: “Images featuring umbrellas, in digital format, whether photographs, photographic collages, or photos of artworks, are eagerly sought!”


DC-area author Leslie Pietrzyk explores the creative process and all things literary.
