SUBMISSIONS

 

Current Spoonful Deadline

We are accepting submissions for issue #7 between January 25th and February 25th (with an eye on going online for March).

Submission Guidelines

Spoonful currently accepts by email submission only. Please send 3-5 poems of various forms and length as Word attachments with the word “Submission: Poetry” in the subject heading to stonesouppoetry@yahoo.com before February 25th.

Short works of fiction and non-fiction will also be considered. We are particularly looking for essays that touch on Stone Soup’s history or the history of the Boston Poetry scene. Please send an inquiry email describing your prose piece and its length before sending it with the word “Proposed Longer Piece” in the subject heading.

Important

With your submissions, please also include as an attachment document a 2-5 sentence bio (longer bios will be edited at the editors’ discretion and without notice).  Please include notice of submissions sent simultaneously to other journals.

A Note On Prior Publication

Our editorial eye will be toward unpublished work but we will considered previously published poems on the basis of merit and/or the previous source (a defunct web journal, a prelude to a larger, new project, etc).

We encourage that you be forthright with a poem’s publication history, if any. Spoonful retains the right to reject and remove from our site, without notice, works with previous publication credits intentionally omitted by the author.

BITS AND PIECES

Visual Inverse 2013 public reading was held on Saturday January 26, before a standing room only crowd at the Plymouth Center for the Arts. 24 original poems set to 24 visual art pieces, plus a slide show of the visual art. The show is currently running through Feb 16 at the Center, please check it out.

The economy strikes the poetry world again, Poet’s Pathway in Middleboro has been temporarily closed, due to the fact that Coffee Milano will no longer be open evenings. Dana Rowe is currently seeking a new location for the venue. It joins Dreamspeaks in Plymouth and Main Street Café in N.Easton as South Shore poetry site currently seeking new locations.

Louise Dery-Wells has sent the following announcement. Please come join me at my Middleboro office on Thursday evening February 28 at 7 pm for a potpourri of fun with tea leaf reading , origami flower messages for loved ones (or ourselves), poetry and color healing meditations, among other possible things, you never know with me! If you hate the idea of an evening and would rather attend on a Saturday afternoon we could do that on Saturday March 2 at 2 pm. But..you need to let me know just as soon as you can! I might be able to host both sessions.

Nice refreshments. Early preregistration is suggested. Limited seating. $45 (but ask a/c income).  508-947-1930
