Lime Trees to Eucalypts: A Botany of Tanka: Call for
Features section of the Atlas Poetica (ATPO) website is
seeking submissions for a collection “From Lime Trees to
Eucalypts: A Botany of Tanka” to be edited by Angela
The plant—flower, shrub or tree—referred to in the poem
should invoke a strong sense of place, either where the
poet lives or has traveled. Thus, poems about more
common and widespread species will not be considered.
Rather what is wanted are plants that are typically
associated with a particular region, even if they are
not well known outside that region. Each poem should be
accompanied by the Latin name of the plant, as well as
location. Poems must not have been previously published.
Submissions: Poets are invited to send up to three tanka,
but only one, if selected, will be published, in keeping
with the theme and format of the features on the Atlas
Poetica website. Send to email@example.com, with a
subject line of ‘A Botany of Tanka.’
Before submitting, please go to
http://www.AtlasPoetica.org All the usual
guidelines for Atlas Poetica apply. Potential
contributors should familiarize themselves with the
Special Features and the full ATPO guidelines.
Deadline for submitting is August 1, 2011. The
planned publication date is September 2011. Special
Features are published on an irregular schedule.
