Black Lawrence Press is now accepting submissions for a book celebrating food and poetry. Feast: Poetry and Recipes for a Full Seating at Dinner is an invitation to host a dinner party and share a meal, as well as a poetic toast or two, with family and friends. “Much depends on dinner,” Lord Byron wrote in The Island, and we believe that much still does. We invite you to contribute to this project that seeks to nourish body and soul with a delicious dinner and scrumptious poetry.
Guidelines: Black Lawrence Press welcomes established as well as emerging writers to submit a poem and an accompanying recipe to Feast. Both a poem and a recipe are required for the submission to be considered.
A few notes:
1) The poem should evoke the spirit of a toast, which has been historically shared as an expression of celebration, goodwill or honor. We would like these “poem toasts” to link to some of the following wider themes: the value of celebration, good company, the enjoyment of food, and commiseration.
2) There is no word limit.
3) The recipe should be appropriate for 6 – 10 servings, and be tagged for one of the following sections: cocktails, appetizers, main courses, or desserts.
Multiple submissions are allowed!
Deadline: June 30, 2012
