Call for anthology submission - Ectopia Strangeness

Call for anthology submission - Ectopia Strangeness | Writing Submissions | Scoop.it
Ecotopia Strangeness is the anthology for the green advocate or
environmental conservationist. Here is an Ecopoetics that laments, confesses, lilts, dreams, historicizes and fictionalizes. What would an eco-utopia look like, and how quickly would it descend into another dystopia, one of regret, in hindsight? How does one dream of something paradisiacal, yet allow it its foreignness and alienation? What alternative world would such a poem conjure, one already open and willing to be made strange?"

Sharon Bakar's insight:

Singaporean poetry anthology, open to international entries. Poems of all genres including prose poems, and of any length accepted. Deadline 14 March 2014.
