entry arrow9:33 PM | Calling All Young Poets of the Philippines Writing in English

Remember that poetry anthology I was trying to put together two years ago as a sequel to FutureShock Prose? The publisher got cold feet and the whole thing went to limbo, much to my dismay. So I am bequeathing the whole project to Ken Ishikawa who is co-editing a similar anthology with Cirilo Bautista. The call for manuscript is as follows...
The editors of a forthcoming anthology would like to request your participation. The book will serve as a peek into and a celebration of the future of Philippine Poetry in English. Dr. Cirilo Bautista will be editing the project with the assistance of Ken T. Ishikawa.

If you are 35 years old and below, a Filipino, and a writer of Poetry in English please send five of your best representative work to newphilippinepoetry(at)gmail(dot)com. Young poets who have not yet published any books are highly encouraged to send their works.

Please send each of your poems in a single file; don't put all five in one. Don't forget to include short biographical information with a scanned 1x1 photo as your profile will appear in the list of contributors. The deadline will be on November 15, 2005.

Honorarium will come in the form of a contributor's copy. Authors of accepted works will be receiving a reply in their mail.

So go ahead. Get published.
