Virgogray Press Chapbook Anthologies / Updates

Virgogray Press will be producing a series of chapbook anthologies published on topical issues for the poetic voice to express itself. The first collection, entitled  “Valium” (which will include work by Donna Snyder, Anne McMillen & Jonathan Penton among others), will be released on August  25th, 2009 by the press. Currently we are reading for our second anthology named “So it Goes…” a poetic anthology of death. The point of the chapbook anthologies is to get a consensus on each topic from the poetry community, so the more submissions the better because the broader and more diverse the poetic voices will be. To that end, I hope if you write poetry you consider submitting something for these chapbook anthologies. Though Virgogray currently does not have a plan for the third chapbook anthology, it is surely around the bend. “So it Goes…” will be released on November 1st, 2009. The close date for submissions is August 20th, 2009. For more information about submitting to Virgogray Press please click on the “Submissions” tab at the top of the blog.  I am also looking for poetry for a magazine of poetry and culture I’d like to publish around 2010. Stay tuned for submission guidelines on this publication. Also, please note that chapbook submissions are still open and will remain so for the rest of the year. Please do allow ample time for response as the volume of submissions coming in to the office is growing daily. At this rate, however, most of our publishing calender is getting filled and I’m happy to note some future releases will include  Polish poet A.J. Kaufmann and another whizz prodigy from New York state, but details soon…
