Film Reel

Tightrope Books is delighted to announce¬†I Found It at the Movies. This forthcoming anthology seeks new and previously published poems inspired by cinema. All styles and approaches welcome. We’re looking for poems that reference specific films or actors, genres of film, the act of movie-going or video-watching, or the intersections of movies and life.

Editors are Ruth Roach Pierson and Sue MacLeod, and the publication date is spring 2013. Please submit from one to five poems (1 to 5), as attachments, to filmpoems@gmail.com, along with a brief  biography. We will send an acknowledgment upon receipt, and hope to complete our selection process by October 2012. Please include full publication details for any poems which have appeared or been accepted elsewhere. You must be a Canadian citizen or permanent Canadian resident. Submission deadline: March 31, 2012.
