Call for Submissions: Beasts, Monsters, Creatures, and Cyborgs: An Anthology of Post-Human Poetry

bjanepr

Beasts, Monsters, Creatures, and Cyborgs: An Anthology of Post-Human Poetry In the twenty-first century poetry interfaces with animal-machine. The “human” is not a given concept, but rather is one that is made in an ongoing technological and anthropological process. We hope to publish an anthology of poetry that participates in technological, biological, representational, sexual, political and theoretical post-humanisms. We’re looking for poetry that engages with or is written by animals, beasts, monsters, creatures, aliens, cyborgs, etc. How do bodies that are misunderstood, misfitting, ugly, failures, etc., challenge western, enlightenment figurations of the “self” and “human”? What are the poetics of rhetorical bodies that exceed definition?

Any contemporary work in English (domestic or translated) that addresses the post-human is welcome. Please send up to 20 pages of poetry, in standard format (*.doc, *.docx, *.rtf, *.pdf) to Aaron Apps & Feng Sun Chen via [submishmash].

Previously published work is welcome; please include acknowledgements (if any) and a brief bio with your submission.

Deadline: January 1st

If you have any questions please contact us at posthumanpoetry[at]gmail.com

Please feel free to forward this call via your e-mail, blog, facebook, tumblr, twitter, etc. We look forward to reading your work.
