In light of this wonderful board and now [Adj][Spec] possibly doing an annual poetry feature, Altivo and I were tossing around the idea of getting a collection of poetry from you wonderful fuzzy poets published. Chances are, nothing is going to happen until after summer. I have Fragments to get done and out and Altivo has to finalize his retirement goodness, so none of the fine print has been worked out yet.
I’m just throwing this out there to see if anyone would actually be interested in submitting to something like this, or if they would be interested in purchasing it.
Updating this first post for those just now coming into this thread, since we are definitely doing this now :3
Sub-theme: Outside observation of animals, in the mind of animals, symbolism of animals*
Line Count: Unlimited**
Publisher: Weasel Press
Payment: A copy of the book. All profit will be donated to charity.
Charity: Wildlife Conservation Society, possibly***
Editors: Altivo and myself.****
*Better wording is welcome. The first might allow room for fandom observations, though including fandom-related material is still up for debate. The last should allow for works about sonas, totem animals, spirit animals, etc. This is assuming we get enough of each variety to warrant the break-up.
**If you send in a short poem, please send in a few so they can be bundled together. We will be hyper-critical of longer poems since we only have so much room to work with.
***This is an international charity that deals with animals, and our dear president has worked with them in the past. However, I need to see how we can make this work with the publisher.
****Thus far GeorgeSquares, Lunostophiles, and Televassi have volunteered to help :3
