Thanks again to everyone who sent material our way for our inaugural issue. I’m happy to say that we received quite a few submissions and had a lot of fun with the selection process and putting the first issue together.
Currently, we’re getting ready for another round of submissions. Before this next call, we’re updating our submission system. Our v2.0 system lets you return to check the status of your submission, to leave a note for the editors, and to withdraw all or part of your submission if necessary. This should be ready in the next couple of weeks, at which point we’ll open it up. In order to have a diverse array of voices, we’re going to ask that you skip this next submission period if you submitted last time.
Remember that one of the things we do here at Subprimal Poetry Art/Music is to ask for an audio recording of your work, and then put your words to music. Poetry is an oral tradition and it’s great to be able to hear the poet read their work. And myself, as a poet and a musician, love to blend the spoken word with music. As always, we start with the poet’s reading for the inspiration that helps deliver the musical accompaniment.
Okay, please check back soon. Meanwhile, you can take a look at the first issue.
