Here are your waters and your watering place.
Drink and be whole again beyond confusion.
-- Robert Frost
We are now accepting submissions for a special Spring 2012 issue, centered around the theme of "Drink." Submit 3-5 poems or visual art pieces (each piece submitted as a separate file) that relate somehow to the theme of "Drink" via our submissions manager.
By drink, we don't mean to limit submissions to poems about frat parties and praying to the porcelain gods (though they are certainly welcome). We encourage submitters to be creative with the theme.
Here are a few possible subcategories:
Here are a few examples of poems Stevie (the editor-in-chief) likes that deal with the theme of "Drink" in somewhat differing ways:
1) "A House is Not a Home" by Terrance Hayes
2) "Small, Generic Night Towns" by Erika Meitner
3) "Bar Xanadu" by Lynda Hull
4) "Directive" by Robert Frost
5) "Alcohol" by Franz Wright
We encourage readers to comment on this blog entry with links to their favorite poems that fit the theme of "drink" in some way.
