Pudding Magazine Seeks EcoPoetry for Special Edition

Call For Poems:
PUDDING MAGAZINE IS LOOKING FOR SUBMISSIONS
FOR A SPECIAL EDITION OF ECOPOETRY.

Editorial Focus
Website: puddingmagazine.com
Pudding Magazine is a print journal that focuses on publishing eclectic, sophisticated poetry that appeals to our conscience through bold and exacting language conjuring powerful imagery.  In this special issue, we focus specifically on work that has vision, passion, and compels the reader to act rather than to indulge or resign – a call to arms – a joining forces – in defense of our natural world: experiment, provoke, innovate, compel and lament!

This special poetry edition 2012, focuses on a fusion of popular culture and social justice with environmental topics such as fracking, mercury contamination, coal burning, pesticides, threats to clean water, clean air, soil pollution, excess consume, overfishing, whaling, global warming, aerial hunting, trapping, shark finning, sealing, poaching, factory farming, plastic bags; GMOs, loss of wildlife habitat etc.  Our collection of EcoPoetry is intended as a tangible means for dialogue to the often disparate contributors and audiences in the fields of ecology, science, ethics, and not-for-profits.  Here, fine poetry meets documentary similar to the interdisciplinary agit-prop art forms in the 1960s.  Such poetic range of motion is sure to capture the landscape of contemporary poetry and our current environment.

  1. my feeling is that if a magazine has to charge submission fees to survive, maybe it shouldn't.
