THE ONE HUNDRED WORDS POETRY ANTHOLOGY
Deadline: December 1, 2010
Theme: The Sex Poem
Edited by Patricia Smith
How do we re-energize and reinvent the sex poem? We identify the 100 words that are the most blatant offenders, and we declare them off limits. That forces us to examine the act without the customary escape routes, those words that say "I don't know how to say this, so I'm saying this."
For a list of the forbidden words, please email 100Wrds@gmail.com.
Submissions of any length or style will be accepted at the same address. Please, no more than three poems per submission. As of yet, no publisher has yet been wooed for this project, but the search is on.
