We are accepting submissions for the 2014 Poetry Anthology

Publication will be in May 2014

April is National Poetry Month!
Submit up to 3 original poems, an article on writing poetry, a memoir about what poetry has meant to your life, or anything else that you have written that has to do with poetry! Perhaps you have a favorite poet or poem that you would like to write about or a memory about a class that you took in poetry. The sky is the limit – as long as it has to do with poetry!

NOTE: There is no fee for submitting. There is no payment for submissions. All submissions will receive a free digital copy of the book. The anthology will be available for purchase in print and ebook.

If your submission has been previously published elsewhere, please indicate where and when (see Rights below).

There is no payment to you for your submission, but you can include your website, work, etc. in your bio paragraph.

Rights: By submitting to the anthology you give Karenzo Media the nonexclusive license to reprint your work on a one-time basis, for the life in print of the anthology, and you retain the copyright and all other rights. If your work was previously published, please check with your publisher regarding whether or not you can publish an excerpt of your work in an anthology.

About Karen Y. Hamilton

Walt Whitman says about his autobiography, Specimen Days “…At any rate I obey my happy hour’s command, which seems curiously imperative. May-be, if don’t do anything else, I shall send out the most wayward, spontaneous, fragmentary book ever printed.” This is what I feel at this juncture of my life, the need to gather together memories of my ancestors as well as my own memories into some semblance of order. Because all of those fragments, all of the fragments that make up any life, become stories. I am the mother of three sons, who affectionately (I hope!) call me 'gypsy mom' because I tend to wander around a bit soaking in the universe's wonders. I am currently working towards an MFA in Creative Writing at Florida Atlantic University. I have published essays with Heritage Press, Florida Living, and the St. Pauls Review. I am currently working on a book of poems about the Florida Everglades pioneers and a memoir about grief and the bonds of friendship. I live in my hometown, Jupiter, Florida and work as a freelance writer and curriculum specialist.
