Carcinogenic Poetry: Lest We Forget

Carcinogenic Poetry is the original Virgogray Press poetry blog that houses verse by poets around the world. Since its inception in December 2009, Carcinogenic Poetry has grown into a powerhouse of todays finest underground writers and poets. In just under two years, Carcinogenic Poetry has garnered readers in over 75 countries and averages over 1,000 views per month. In late 2010, Virgogray Press issued the first annual Carcinogenic Poetry Print Anthology which featured the work of over 100 poets and exceeded 300 pages. We here at Virgogray are thankful to all involved in the success of this publication and look forward to future correspondence. Carcinogenic Poetry is open to submission year round and accepts previously published poetry, as well. Visit for the full submission guidelines. At Carcinogenic Poetry, we are interested in poetry with heart and soul; verse unafraid to ignite the fire of truth for the truth is to lies like cancer. Come read; come get read at Carcinogenic Poetry.

Carcinogenic Poetry Temporarily Closing Submissions

Carcinogenic will not take submissions nor publish submissions the last week of November, which summarily begins on November 21, 2010. Carcinogenic will resume submissions in December. As Carcinogenic Poetry prepares to enter its second year, we will be preparing the print anthology. Get your poems in before then if you are interested. Don’t forget to read the guidelines.

Don’t forget the reading of “Dear Bela” to be held at Beyond Baroque on October 31, 2010. Full details are available at Beyond Baroque’s website-
