ISO Ethnic Poets & First-Generation Immigrant Poets

A message from poet John Guzlowski*:

“I found out recently that Steel Toe Books, the poetry press that published my book Lightning and Ashes, is currently looking for book-length poetry manuscripts from ethnic minorities and first-generation immigrant, non-native speakers of English. You can read more about its submission process at their website: http://www.wku.edu/~tom.hunley/steeltoebooks/submit.htm

*Check out John’s fascinating blog about his parents and their experiences in Nazi Germany, a topic that also informs his poetry: http://lightning-and-ashes.blogspot.com/


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