Call for poetry anthology submissions

Call for poems by NM poets for iCreate anthology commemorating the organization's founder Merris Atman, who had a special interest in creative mentoring of overlooked voices. Submissions from youth, young adults, new and marginalized voices are especially welcome. 

Although not a requirement, there will be an editorial preference for poetry compatible Merris Atman's interest as stated above. Publication will be in electronic format, with links to document files for optional downloading. We are also looking into on demand publishing in ebook format should interest warrant and finances are up to it.

All entries should be compatible with the iCreate mission and not unsuitable for general readership, 13 years of age and older. Translated works, Spanish, Spanish/English macaronic (code switching) verse, song lyrics, corridos, romances or ballads and slam poetry will be considered. MP3 files or video clips may accompany songs, hip-hop and slam entries. Length is not the central issue, though works not exceeding three pages are more likely to be accepted. 

Electronic submission only. Submit up three poems as RTF or Word 1997-2003 documents, double spaced. Text in body of email accepted. Docx and Pdf files will not be accepted. No abstracts or CVs please. 

Deadline is May 24, 2011. Contact iCreate@mountainair-online.net with questions or for more information. A  more complete description of the memorial anthology project will be available on the iCreate website, http://iCreateNM.org
