Poems Wanted for the Bill Berkson tribute issue of Cruel Garters (No. 10). We seek to publish in print
both well-established & newer voices in a small, stripped-down
publication that minimizes literary trappings and focuses on the work
itself. We prefer the short, lyrical, and odd.
No. 10 will be an
expanded, special issue devoted to poems inspired by Bill and his work. Cruel Garters exists largely to continue the aesthetic and
energy of the New York School writers, and Berkson (1939-2016) was both an
inspiration and contributor.
Deadline: December 31; No Fee to Submit
only. No cover letters. A reply from the editors about publication
should appear within 120 days. Payment for No. 10 is a single copy.
