Wanted: poems about ageing for new anthology
Specialist anthology publisher The Emma Press has launched a call for poems about age, for an anthology to be edited by Sarah Hesketh. The publisher hopes the book will address common fears about growing older, and celebrate ageing, while acknowledging its challenges.
Hesketh, a poet and freelance project manager, was inspired by her time as poet in residence with Age Concern in 2013. The Emma Press has already published three themed poetry anthologies; its most recent collection is an anthology of fatherhood. Anthologies about homesickness and exile and female friendship are scheduled for autumn 2014.
Poets thinking of submitting up to three poems to firstname.lastname@example.org must be members of the Emma Press Club, whereby the purchase of a book from the publisher's website allows entry to all calls for anthology submissions within the calendar year. More details
