Call for Submissions of Poetry Collage

Tightrope Books’ Assistant Editor & Designer Karen Correia Da Silva is Guest Poetry Editor for the next issue of the Incongruous Quarterly, a Toronto and Montreal based online literary journal. She’s looking for poems on the theme of collage. The prompt:

Disconnected or disorganized? Pastiche or plagiarism? We’re looking for mosaics and mash-ups. The technique of collage in poetry is much like its counterpart in visual art; that of mixing, mashing, and gluing – sometimes haphazardly – words together. Think cut ups, bits of found text, pastiche, mixed genre, or multimedia. We want botched prosodics, exploding sentences, or just plain wack word fusions that would make any Formalist cringe.

For more information, check out the Incongruous Quarterly’s submissions guidelines, or the Fall call for submissions page.
