For those of you who love museums and poetry, here’s an opportunity to get published. Kim Roberts, editor of the Beltway Poetry Quarterly, has forwarded the following details:
Beltway Poetry Quarterly, an online journal, seeks poems for a special themed issue celebrating museums. Poems should be about specific museums (of any kind, of any size, in any location) or specific items exhibited in museum collections. The issue will be co-edited by Kim Roberts and Maureen Thorson.
Only poets who live or work in DC, VA, MD, WV, or DE are eligible. Poems may be any length. Submit up to 4 poems by email only. Poems that have already appeared in print publications are acceptable if copyright has reverted to the author (and author secures any permission for reprinting). Poems appearing elsewhere on the web are not eligible.
Submit poems in the body of a single email (no attachments, and please no multiple emails) to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include your full contact information (snail mail address, phone, email) and a one-paragraph bio. Incomplete entries and those made outside the one-month reading period will not be considered.
The issue will be published in January 2009. All entries must be received during the month of August 2008.
