Anselm Hollo Call For Submissions

Bombay Gin Issue 40: Anselm Hollo Call for Submissions open May 1, 2013 through September 1, 2013.

In January, our friend and colleague Anselm Hollo passed away at the age of 78. A native of Helsinki, Finland, Anselm taught poetics and translation in the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics at Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado since 1985. Anselm was the author of more than forty books of poetry, including Notes on the Possibilities and Attractions of Existence: New and Selected Poems 1965-2000 (2001), which won the San Francisco Poetry Center Book Award; AHOE (1997); Corvus (1995); Finite Continued (1980); and Sojourner Microcosms: New and Selected Poems 1959-1977 (1977). He also published a book of essays, Caws and Causeries: Around Poetry and Poets (1999). His many translations include works by Paavo Haavikko and Pentti Saarikoski, for whose Trilogy (2003) Hollo received the Harold Morton Landon Translation Award from the Academy of American Poets.

In accord with Naropa University’s 40th Anniversary and in memory of our beloved Anselm Hollo, Issue 40 of Bombay Gin will include a section devoted to Anselm, which might include work dedicated to or inspired by Anselm as well as remembrances, essays, or critical responses to his work.

This call for submissions runs from May 1, 2013 through September 1, 2013.  In general, we welcome manuscripts of prose, poetry, and cross-genre work. Poetry submissions should be comprised of 3-5 poems; prose and cross-genre manuscripts should generally consist of no more than 15 pages. We accept submissions via Submittable. Please do not snail mail or email your work.

Please support the journal in which you want your work published. Bombay Gin can be purchased through SMALL PRESS DISTRIBUTION, on our website, or by sending a check for $12.00, made out to BOMBAY GIN. Thank you for your interest in our magazine.
