Call for Submissions —

In the Tempered Dark: Contemporary Poets Transcending Elegy examines the relationship between the body in grief and the body of the poem. This collection brings together work that conveys the range of grief that feels urgent to twenty-first century, living poets from diverse backgrounds, at different stages in their careers, confronting assorted losses through various styles and forms. By pairing contemporary poems with micro-essays, wherein each poet considers the connection between their included poetry and their corresponding grief, In the Tempered Dark initiates a dialogue designed to engage teachers, students, readers, and writers.

Dr. Lisa Fay Coutley will serve as editor. For more information and to submit your work, click here
