Very Special Call for Submissions
HIV Here & Now
from publisher Michael H. Broder
It’s that time again. The submission and solicitation wells are dry. The HIV Here & Now Project WEBSITE needs new work FAST (I have nothing for today, for example, let alone the next 152 days). NEW OR PREVIOUSLY PUBLISHED poems or short (up to 500 words) prose pieces. By any poet regardless of HIV status. Preferably touching on HIV in some way shape or form, even if metaphorical. Our key advocacy themes are testing, treatment, prevention, dispelling shame, and eliminating stigma. You can really use any of those ideas as a way into a poem that never even mentions HIV or AIDS. Or just any pieces you think would work on the site. You’re a poet! Use your imagination!!
While I appreciate the dedication, please do not submit if your work has already appeared on the site; we are trying not to repeat poets or writers.
Send work to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include a face pic and a brief bio emphasizing your publications.
Previous HIV Here & Now Project poets and writers, please solicit one poet or writer directly, post this on your timelines and share with your groups and other social networks. (I’ll tag 20 of you each week.)
