Some Calls For Your Poetry Submissions

Writing Workshop

We have gotten a couple calls for submissions for poetry in the past few days and wanted to pass the information along to you.

First up is the first issue of the Perfume River Poetry Review out of California. This first issue will feature the Perfume River Poetry Prize.  The winner of the contest will be awarded $500.

Named after the river that flows through the Vietnamese imperial capital city of Huế, Perfume River Poetry Review is a new print literary journal that will publish its first issue in February 2013.  The magazine was begun by Vuong Quoc Vu in 2012 to showcase and celebrate the best in new and emerging poetry.  Vu, a graduate of the MFA in Creative Writing Program  at Fresno State Univeristy, has been an editor of Reed Magazine, the San Joaquin Journal, and Caesura before embarking on his own poetry adventure on the Perfume River.

For full information on this new journal of poetry, please check  out their website here.


We are now moving east with our friend R.M. Engelhardt and The Literary Rogue looking for poetry, photos, and literature. January 1, 2013 is the deadline for the second edition of this new online magazine.
