Submit or Rue: A Face to Meet the Faces

The editors are pleased to announce a call for submissions for A Face to Meet the Faces: An Anthology of Contemporary Persona Poetry.

We are seeking poems that work within the literary tradition of persona poetry: poems written as dramatic monologues, whose speakers employ masks, or whose character and voice are different from the poet's own.

Please submit up to 5 unpublished poems. We will also consider poems whose rights have reverted back to the author.

All submissions will be accepted electronically. Please send an email to the editors at with the poet's name and "Submission for Persona Anthology" as the subject line, with the poems as an attachment.

Submissions will be accepted October 1, 2009 through January 1, 2010.

Is there a length limit on the poems for the persona anthology? I have many persona poems.

Hi Jeffrey,

I'm sure it depends on how many submissions come in and the length of your pieces, relative to the page count for the overall anthology.

Submit, regardless.
