The Science Fiction Poetry Association (est. 1978) is accepting submissions of speculative poetry for the January 2018 issue of its flagship ezine, Eye to the Telescope. This issue will conjure up verse-style stories of “Arthuriana.”
Guest editor Adele Gardner is reviewing speculative poetry that explores all things things Arthurian–themes, events and characters of Celtic legends, medieval romances, Victorian and Pre-Raphaelite revivals, etc. The editor welcomes variations of Arthurian myths that converge with the noble, knightly, or martial arts rituals of many cultures. All styles and forms are welcome.
Poets can submit up to five poems. Poems must be original and unpublished.
Token Payment: 3 cents/word–$3 minimum or up to $25 maximum–for First (or Reprint) Electronic Rights. Payment is upon publication.
Reading period closes December 15, 2017. Read the publication’s guidelines here.
(Speculative poetry covers the genres of science fiction, fantasy, and supernatural horror, as well as similar genres such as magic realism, metafiction, and fabulation. It is difficult to define speculative poetry since these genres correspond to fiction instead of poetry.)
