Deadline June 1 | Call for Submissions: This Assignment is so Gay: LGBTIQ Poets on the Art of Teaching (Sibling Rivalry Press)

Post date: 24 May 2012
Deadline: 1 June 2012

Sibling Rivalry Press is seeking submissions for an anthology scheduled for publication in August 2013. This assignment is so gay: LGBTIQ Poets on the Art of Teaching, edited by Megan Volpert, will be the first-ever anthology to feature an international roster of LGBTIQ poets writing about and from the teacher's perspective. Whether elementary or collegiate, public or private, the school is an institutional battleground for representations of queer culture. This book will examine the joyous burden that is the experience of LGBTIQ teachers, an inherently valuable and until now relatively invisible piece of the educational puzzle.

Submission period is open January 1 through June 1, 2012. Submit up to five previously unpublished poems. Poems must engage some aspect of teaching, but need not be explicitly queer-themed. Author must identify as LGBTIQ.
