Call for Submissions: Nepantla

About Us
Nepantla is a new poetry e-journal, dedicated to Queer Poets of Color, being curated by Christopher Soto in collaboration with The Lambda Literary Foundation. The mission of Nepantla is to nurture, celebrate, and preserve diversity within the queer poetry community. The journal will be a groundbreaking collection of some the best poetry from the QPOC community.
To Submit Your Work

As a journal, Nepantla is interested in poetry of concise language, high sensory imagery, and syntactic leaps. Nepantla is NOT interested in poetry that puts rhetoric before craft, or exoticizes/fetishizes the lives of Queer People of Color.

Lastly, dearest submitters, please recognize Nepantla as an intentional community space, so please only consider submitting to Nepantla if you self-identify as a queer poet of color. Send your bio and up to five pages of poetry to No multiple submissions, please. A $25.00 honorarium will be offered to poets published in Nepantla. Submission deadline is August 1, 2014.
