One of our amazing vox poetica contributors, Galit Breen, approached me recently with an idea for an anthology of writing and art created by students. As you know, publishing the poetry of young people has been an active part of the vox poetica mission, and Galit’s idea was inspired by the positive experience her daughter Kayli had submitting her poem Waterfall (published here in January 2012). The result of our discussions is Pens and Paint, an anthology series to be published by unbound CONTENT focusing on the poetry and art by students ages 6 to 18. Here is the call for submissions for the first collection. For more information, contact Series Editor Galit Breen (firstname.lastname@example.org). Feel free to share with young writers and artists that you know.
- The full text of the poem or a jpg photo of the artwork
- A two-three sentence “About the Author” including age
- A parental permission sentence such as, “I (name of parent) am the parent of (named child) and grant permission for (title of work), created by (named child), for the Pens and Paint: Dreams vox poetica anthology to be published by unbound CONTENT.”
