Happy Easter everyone, I hope you’re all up to your eyeballs in chocolate and are enjoying the fine weather?
We’re celebrating the rebirth of our Celebrating Change project with a brand-new guest editor for this blog. Amy Kinsman is a poet from Manchester. As well as being founding editor of Riggwelter Press, they are also associate editor of Three Drops From A Cauldron and the former host of Gorilla Poetry in Sheffield. Their debut pamphlet ‘&’ was joint winner of the Indigo Dreams Pamphlet Prize 2017.
Amy is interested in all formats of poetry/prose, and would like to hear from anyone with work inspired by activism and protest. They say “I know for a lot of people just existing in public as themselves is a political statement” – so take this theme as broadly as you like!
Please send no more than 3 pieces of work as an email attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org, with the subject line FAO Kinsman
Please include a 50-word biog, your social media addresses, and a high resolution photograph of yourself (with who to credit as photographer)
Previously published work is accepted if sent with applicable credits and links
DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS IS MONDAY 3RD JUNE 8pm
