Received an announcement last week from A Midsummer Night’s Press about two new annual anthologies: Best Gay Poetry and Best Lesbian Poetry. For the 2008 editions, they’re looking for poetry published during 2007. “Poems can have appeared in print or online magazines, journals, or anthologies; we are also willing to consider poems from books or chapbooks first published in 2007, even if the poem was originally published previously in periodicals, so long as the poet has the right to reprint the poem.” The publisher tells me that compensation will be determined once the final number of contributors is known (dividing up a small budget). Deadline: December 1, 2007. Submission information here.
