Call for Submissions for Anthology of Poetry by Sexual Assault Survivors

Sundress Publications announces an open submission call for a new anthology of poetry written by sexual assault survivors. Submissions can but do not need to directly deal with sexual assault. We hope to both provide an avenue for publishing work about sexual assault, as it can be challenging to find markets open to that topic, and showcase the full, vibrant lives survivors lead outside their trauma.

Contributors will be paid a small honorarium and receive a copy of the print anthology. This anthology will appear in a digital and print format.

Interested poets should submit up to (3) poems along with a short bio (max. 100 words), and a preferred email address, on this form by September 30, 2024.

Submit your poems here!

Previously published work will be considered as long as you retain the right to reprint it and note where it first appeared. Simultaneous submissions are acceptable as long as the author notifies the editor at that the work has been accepted elsewhere before notification of acceptance in the anthology.

Erin Elizabeth Smith will serve as the editor for this anthology. Erin Elizabeth Smith (she/her) is the Executive Director of Sundress Publications and the Sundress Academy for the Arts and a 2023 Academy of American Poets Laureate Fellow. She is the author of three full-length collections of poetry, most recently DOWN (SFASU 2020) and the founder of the Best of the Net Anthology. Her work has appeared in The Kenyon Review, Guernica, Ecotone, Crab Orchard, and Mid-American.Smith is a Distinguished Lecturer in the English Department at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville.

A special thanks to the Academy of American Poets whose grant made this anthology possible.
