Poets are invited to submit pantoums for an upcoming anthology, tentatively titled, “Pantoums for the 21st Century.”

Send up to three pantoums, which meet the following criteria:

  • the poem must be recognizable as a pantoum
  • although the poets may be international, the pantoums must be in English
  • the pantoums can be previously published in a print or online journal or magazine where the author holds copyright, but I will not accept pantoums previously published in books.

Also, no translations, please. I prefer that pantoums not have the word “pantoum” in their titles, for obvious reasons. Payment TBD.

The collection will be edited by Carol H. Jewell, whose first book, Hits and Missives, was published in 2017, by Clare Songbirds Publishing House (Auburn, NY), and which contains numerous pantoums.

Send submissions in Word, as PDF, or in the body of your email. Please put “Pantoum anthology” in the subject line. If your Pantoum(s) is/are chosen, you will be asked to provide a brief biographical statement. Send your pantoums to cherbiej@gmail.com before December 31, 2018.
