APOSTROPHE BOOKS: Call for Manuscripts

We are interested in writing that expands the potential definitions of poetry. With this in mind, we actively seek work that investigates language, and consciousness in language, in innovative and/or subversive ways. APOSTROPHE strives to publish work that complicates and challenges the idea of a "well-crafted" poem by disclosing its own operations and undermining presumptions about what actually constitutes a poem. This means we are pursuing writing that challenges the categories and generic distinctions most often associated with poetry. The editors find poetic writing that intersects theory, philosophy, cultural studies, and/or pataphysics to be especially compelling.

We are currently accepting manuscripts. Please send ONE book length manuscript (48 pages or more) to each address below:

Richard Greenfield
104 Poplar Hill Ext.
Johnson City, TN 37604

Mark Tursi
66 Lenox Ave.
East Stroudsburg, PA 18301

DEADLINE to submit: April 1st, 2006

Manuscripts will be chosen by mid-June and you will be notified shortly after. Please include an SASE, an email address and/or a phone number. Manuscripts will not be returned, so please do not send your only copy. Electronic submissions will not be accepted.
