the deep cleveland poetry project

The 'deep cleveland poetry project' is a chapbook series designed to generate greater exposure for cleveland's vibrant community of poets. goal: to eventually publish every serious poet in northeast ohio. new chapbooks will be released as time and funds allow. The "partner-in-profit" for the deep cleveland poetry project series is: The Poets & Writers League of Greater Cleveland.



deep cleveland press seeks chapbook submissions from northeast ohio poets for the deep cleveland poetry project. each submission should consist of 20-40 pages of poetry. no restrictions on content or theme, but i dig work characterized by innovative language, expression of mature feeling, complexity of thought & of course, a little neon day-glow madness always helps. experimental poetry encouraged. no rhyming (metered) poetry please, unless the work is is inflamed with pure hip-hop consciousness. a clevelandcentric line of vision is always good. you would make my life infinitely easier if you would submit your work as a MS word attachment & without elaborate line formations that zig-zag down the page. when submitting, please send a bio and publishing credits as well. if i already know your work, sorry for the formality. i'm trying to sound official here.

poets will actually be PAID for their work. imagine that! okay it's not much -- 25 free copies of the chapbook, plus a deep discount to buy more when you run out. i will sell and promote your work on my web site (that's where i make a buck or two), and wherever else i show up in the world. fifty cents from each sale will also be donated to the Poets & Writers League of Greater Cleveland, as part of my "partners-in-profit" good-karma operating philosophy.
