Poet's Haven Digest anthologies are not published on any set schedule. When enough material has been accepted to complete one of the anthologies, that submission call will be closed and the book will be published when Vertigo has time to get the work done. The hope is that at least one, preferably two of these books can be ready for publication by October 2012, which marks The Poet's Haven's 15th anniversary.
If you notice a trend in the themes towards the fantastic, it is because these are themes that the publisher enjoys reading.
Publication in this series pays one copy. Authors with work in an anthology can also purchase up to ten additional copies at a 50% discount.
"We Only Come Out at Night"
THEME: VAMPIRES AND WEREWOLVES
The Poet's Haven is seeking poetry about vampires and werewolves for an upcoming Poet's Haven Digest publication titled "We Only Come Out at Night." We are NOT looking for sparkly teen angst melodrama "vampires." Vampires and were-creatures should be bad-ass. We don't want Louis, we want Lestat. NOTE: Writings set in White Wolf's "Vampire: The Masquerade" role-play game universe MAY be acceptable, so long as they do not reference anything that would fall under the game publisher's copyrights and trademarks. "Dracula" is in public domain, so work utilizing characters from Bram Stoker's novel are acceptable.
Submissions should be sent to: PHDvamps[AT]PoetsHaven.com
"On Velvet Feet"
The Poet's Haven is seeking poetry about cats for an upcoming Poet's Haven Digest publication titled "On Velvet Feet." Poems written from a cat's perspective or viewpoint are highly encouraged.
Submissions should be sent to: PHDcats[AT]PoetsHaven.com
The Poet's Haven is seeking poetry dealing with extraterrestrials for an upcoming Poet's Haven Digest publication. We are not looking for alien-conspiracy, "X-Files" type aliens, but rather work more akin to "Alien Nation," where extraterrestrials are already among us, and how our world and culture looks to their alien perspectives.
Submissions should be sent to: PHDaliens[AT]PoetsHaven.co
