DIVERSION PRESS ANNOUNCES THIRD POETRY ANTHOLOGY and POETRY CONTEST
Diversion Press seeks
poems for publication in an upcoming anthology.
Our most recent poetry
anthology, People Poetry: For People, By People, and Sometimes About
People was published last year. People Poetry includes over sixty poems
by over sixty different poets.
Our other anthology Meanderings: A Collection of Poetic Verse
combines the work of an array of first time published and seasoned poets. This
collection is for a general readership and includes the winners from the
Diversion Press annual poetry contest.
Poems for the new
anthology must be for a general readership.
Nothing offensive or vulgar will be published. Shorter poems will fare better. Poets will be notified of acceptance by
email and will be required to return a release form. When submitting place a cover letter in the
body of the email and attach in a Word Document up to five poems for
consideration. The poems must be typed
exactly as you would like them to appear.
There must be a cover letter in the body of the email or the attachments
will not be opened or receive a reply.
Contributors who are
accepted will not get a free copy, but may purchase a discounted copy. Buying a copy is not required for
publication, in fact you will be notified of acceptance or rejection long
before there is an opportunity to purchase the work.
Please visit our
website and blog to submit poems, to ask questions, to view our catalog, or to
order books. We are seeking journal and
blog reviews of our two published poetry anthologies. If you are interested please contact us. Our PDF catalog can be downloaded from our
