We are looking for poems on the theme of love and justice. The selections will appear in a special section, guest edited by Sun contributor Crystal Williams, in an upcoming issue. Williams is a poet and essayist and an advocate for diversity and inclusivity in the arts.
Our aim is to provide a space for writers to address this peculiar historical moment, the human condition, and our capacity to come together. Poems may be personal or political or both. We favor accessible language and thought, but we are open to poems that push boundaries and challenge readers. We especially want to hear from writers of color.
The deadline for submissions is November 1, 2017. We pay $100 for each accepted poem. Please use the link below to send us your work.
