Anthology of poetry on addiction seeks submissions

by Lisa
(USA)

Hello.

As the mother of a heroin addict, so many of the stories on this site mirror very closely the anguish so many people can relate to, whether a user or somebody close to one.

I am a published author with six collections to date. My seventh collection is due out mid 2012.

I am also the editor and founder of a contemporary poetry journal and a small press.

Little Lark Press is currently compiling an anthology of poetry on addiction and is seeking submissions. The anthology is titled: The Whole Desolate Day.

I'm seeking work on any addiction, not only drugs and alcohol, but anything that has adversely affected your life.

It is with high hopes and the greatest intentions that we at Little Lark Press wish to release a large volume of poetry to inspire, change, aid and understand the powerful hold of addiction.

As a writer, I find the act of writing very helpful and as a reader of poetry and literature, I am always inspired and grateful for other people's words, thoughts, emotions and insight.

If interested please visit the Press at:

There you will find a full list of guidelines. Thank you for taking the time to read my call.

Blessings.
