ISO Female Poets of a Certain Age

Call for Poetry from PersiItalicmmon Tree — Spring 2010 Issue

We are seeking previously unpublished poems for the Spring 2010 issue from women over sixty who live in the North Central States region (ID, MT, WY, NV, UT, CO, ND, SD, NE, MN, IA, MO, KS, IL, IN, OH, MI, WI).

We're pleased to announce that Andrea Hollander Budy will be the guest poetry editor for this issue. She will select 10-12 poets for publication from the entries. The email address and guidelines for this poetry section are different from the magazine's general address and guidelines. Poetry manuscripts must use the following guidelines to be considered:

— Previously unpublished poems should be emailed to between Nov. 1 - Dec. 15, 2009. Poems that arrive earlier or later will not be read. Poems sent directly to Persimmon Tree will not be forwarded.

— Include 1-3 poems in a single WORD attachment, one page per poem. No poem may be longer than a page; use 12 point type. The first page of this document should contain only your name, phone number, email address, and postal mailing address, as well as a list of the titles and first lines of your poems. Do not put your name or any other identifying information on the pages with the poems.

— In the subject line of the email message, type POETRY FOR PT. In the body of the message, include your name, phone number, email address, and postal mailing address.

If you send a submission that fails to follow the above guidelines, it will be automatically deleted. You will not be notified.
