Carcinogenic Poetry 200 Posts Strong!

Carcinogenic Poetry celebrated its 200th post today, marking a year and a half of sharing poetry from independent, literary voice. To date many poets have passed through the halls of Carcinogenic Poetry from traditional writers, to publishers, radio hosts, visual artists, editors, professors, doctors, laymen, entrepeneurs, all walks of life and they are all from the underground. These are the voices you will not hear anywhere else, lest they be amongst the ranks of independent and small lit culture itself. Carcinogenic Poetry was created as a beacon of truth in the vast expanse of the poetic genre; it has become a venue of choice, playing host to many influential and popular names: Felino A. Soriano, Ross Vassilev, Joe Milford, Gillian Prew,  John Sibley Williams, Michael Mc Aloran, Ivan Jenson, Carly Bryson,  A.J. Kaufmann, Howie Good to name a few. 
Carcinogenic Poetry publishes on a rolling basis and posts new poetry about once a week. At the end of the year, the blog is anthologized in an annual year book– the Carcinogenic Poetry Print Anthology. Last year we topped 300 pages with over 100 poets featured. The anthology proved to be a great hallmark of modern literature and a signature of the voice and future of the independent literate. We welcome all to be apart of the spectacle again. We are about half-year and are looking to release the second volume anthology in December. Submit now. Don’t forget, reprints ARE ACCEPTABLE. PLEASE READ GUIDELINES for full details. Thanks again to everyone who contributes to Carcinogenic Poetry and thanks to both the readers and writers who always return. Blessing be to all.

Carcinogenic Poetry Accepting Submissions

Carcinogenic Poetry is a brand new poetry blog publishing poems of the absurd, non traditional and new thought writing as well. The truth is to lies like cancer, and with this fact in mind, Carcinogenic strives to bring voices that radiate among the independent and underground lit realm. The work at Carcinogenic Poetry speaks. Already a number of poets and writers have lined up to share their work in a presentation of indiscriminate creativity and truth.

You may send up to five poems in the body of your email. Please include a two to three line bio.

Simultaneous submissions are fine as well, but please let us know immediately when any work in submission has been accepted for publication by another entity. Authors and poets keep all rights to their work, but Virgogray Press & Carcinogenic Poetry reserve the right to archive your work and use in future print editions and/or publications.

Other Publishing Opportunities

Though Virgogray Press is closed to chapbook manuscript submissions for the time being, we are still accepting submissions of work for the above mentioned, Carcinogenic Poetry, and our Virgogray Press Chapbook Anthologies. The VGP Chapbook Anthology Series has a new publication scheduled for release in the first months of 2010 called “America Remember” and is an anthology of poetry about the philosophies and ideas that founded the United States of America. If you have poetry or prose or polemics in this vein, you are welcome to submit your work to Virgogray Press. Those accepted for publication will receive two contributors copies. Unfortunately we cannot offer monetary payment for the publication of author’s work. Work considered for publication in any of the Virgogray Chapbook Anthologies must be previously unpublished and simultaneous submissions are discouraged! The new deadline for “America Remembered” is January 22, 2010 so please send in your work soon!

Virgogray Press Chapbook Anthologies are released quarterly and collect poems thematically calculated to fit the vision of the issue. The next anthologies will have the theme of “mothers” so prepare your poetry and prose and get it over to us.

If you’ve read or purchased any of our previous anthologies, you know it is a collection of voices that has no bias to style or development, but ring through with a clarity that originates with the gifts of the creative. Submit to the Virgogray Press Chapbook Anthologies… “America Remembered” is waiting to hear you.
