Poetry can be a difficult field to break into, but it’s a beautiful medium for sharing thoughts and conveying emotions. That’s why poetry zines are particularly lovely.

Call for Blog & Feature Writers

We're looking for writers who are interested in contributing in an ongoing manner to the Anomaly Blog, either by proposing a column or series, or by joining a team of staff writers who both pitch and take on assigned pieces for the blog. We are particularly interested in writers to focus on reviews, interviews, and profiles of artists and writers; and in getting pitches for columns or series that focus specifically on a particular artistic or writing community within the purview of our expanded mission. If you are interested, please send an email to Features & Reviews Editor Sarah Clark with a paragraph about what you're interested in writing about and your CV attached.

Call for Folio Proposals

Anomaly features special sections, that we call folios, in each issue, and between issues. To propose a theme or topic for an upcoming folio, please submit a brief, 500-word description, making sure to specify what genres will be included in the content of your folio, and the names of some potential contributors (you do not need to already have content selected, just a few names as examples!). 

Folios proposals are accepted and reviewed on an ongoing basis. Propose a folio here.
