From Valentine Pierce via Facebook:
Let’s get all the poets and writers to submit poems/prose/essays and do an “Election 2016” anthology of poetry. Of course, it would have a grand tongue-in-cheek name like “Why I moved to Canada” or have you seen the “Rio Grande Wall?” Or “How Much Is That Passport in the Window” or “Can You Give Me the Number for NAFTA?”
Think on that. Share it, too.
I would say visual artists but this is going to be down and dirty, i.e., I will have to find money to print it, so unless the art represents well in b/w, it would not serve your work.
I am serious. Take the chance, the dare. New Orleans poets and writers and from around the state.
And writers around the world. Deadline: December 25, 2016.
Guidelines for those who want to help create this anthology:
12pt Times Roman, Name and Home State (or home state you’ve claimed), email me with the SUBJ: Election Anthology and your Name. Poems should be three pages or less. 3 poems, 6 haiku, deadline December 25.
Email to: email@example.com. Pick your top three.
