THE EMMA PRESS, WHOSE CHARMING SUBTITLE IS “SMALL PRESS, BIG DREAMS,” seeks submissions of poems about “urban myths and legends,” for a new anthology inspired by Ovid’s Metamorphoses. Poets are encouraged to send in poems which tell new stories and include some kind of transformation, as a nod to the original text.
Publisher Emma Wright says, “The Metamorphoses is often considered Ovid’s masterpiece. The requirements are quite exacting, but I think poets like a challenge and will hopefully come up with some brilliant stories.”
The deadline for submissions is December 31st. To submit, you must be a member of the Emma Press Club, which involves buying a book, ebook, or set of postcards from the publisher’s website. Find full submissions guidelines at the Submissions page.
