Going underground: call for submissions to anniversary anthology
Small poetry press Fire Hazard is calling for submissions to a new anthology, Underground, to mark the 150th anniversary of the opening of the world's first underground railway in London in 1863. The print anthology will look at experiences of underground railways and their impact (for better and worse) on the communities they serve around the world. Themes could include (but are by no means limited to): construction of underground railways; history of the lines and the stations; the above-ground communities the underground serves; the experience of commuting / travelling underground; art of the underground; people experienced on the underground; subterranean geographies / cities; mapping the underground. If you would like your work to be considered, send up to four poems and a brief biographical note to firstname.lastname@example.org with the word "underground" in the subject title. The deadline is 31 March. All included poets will receive an electronic copy of the anthology, with print copies available for purchase in early summer.
