"This work is unlike any other, in its range of rich, conjuring imagery and its dexterity, its smart voice. Carroll-Hackett doesn’t spare us—but doesn’t save us—she draws a blueprint of power and class with her unflinching pivot: matter-of-fact and tender." —Jan Beatty

I’m working on sending out a new book of prose poems, so I thought I’d share some of the calls for books I’ve found. Thanks to Poets & Writers, to all the good folks on Facebook who host Call for Submissions groups, and especially to Allison Joseph for all of the amazingly generous work she does for the writing community on her fabulous group CWROPPS!

The list here is for current open calls for poetry, for book-length collections, but many of these presses also have calls for prose and for chapbooks at other times of the year, so check them out 🙂 Some of these are contests; others are open readings periods with reading fees.

Got book? Send it out!
