Anthology (poetry + sound = pdf)

Accepting submissions: Oct 01, 2018 — Nov 30, 2018

I am organizing an anthology of sound poetry/poems for solo voice. This will be a pdf file, so please send your text or graphics that can be performed aloud to - the deadline is the end of November 2018. It is a non-commercial project. The result should be a pdf file full of poems ready to be sung/recited/beatboxed and so on... simply performed with a single human voice. I hope the anthology will be helpful to many people who like to recite poetry. Please send only your works. The poems can be new or old, the Authors keep their authors rights, so you can publish the poems elsewhere too.

One of the aims of the anthology is to popularize sound poetry in Poland. All languages are welcome, as well as poems that concentrate on pure sound.

Mastodon Publishing

Accepting submissions: All Year

Dear Writers,

Mastodon Publishing has recently opened up submissions for full-length publications and we are looking for quality material from everywhere. We are looking for meaningful work of a wide variety, including everything from literary to commercial upmarket, fantasy to nonfiction. Our mission remains to bring forth as diverse and engaging a catalogue as possible to share with the world.

Mastodon Publishing Bio:

Mastodon is dedicated to making thoughts real, whether that means teaching a hobby, bringing a unique and important story to readers, or encouraging them to fight against injustices, conspiracies, or abuses of power. The company aims to publish a full spectrum of literary, commercial upmarket, political, theological, cultural, craft, and philosophical viewpoints. We love ideas and imaginative minds, creative minds, and technical minds: anyone with good thoughts that wants to see them made into a book. We similarly love those of us who ache to read the thoughts of others. Without one there can be no other. And so we want to bring as diverse and uncensored a catalog to life as we can, through print and digital, from short books to large books, technical to art.
