The Voices Israel Group of Poets in English publishes an annual anthology of poetry. Submissions are accepted from Voices members and non-members alike. There is no fee for submitting poems to the anthology. Paid up members of Voices Israel will receive one copy of the anthology once it comes out, whether they are published or not, shipping fees included. Extra copies for members are NIS40 (US$20) shipping inclusive. Contributors who are non-members may order copies for NIS50 (US$ 25) each shipping inclusive.
Submissions for the Voices Israel anthology 2018 are accepted during the period 15th December 2017 to March 15th 2018.
Poems will be then be sent to the editorial board, which will review them, make selections and send out notices. The anthology will be printed by October1st 2018 or earlier and distributed to paid-up Voices Israel members and others who have ordered and paid for a copy.
Anyone, anywhere, is welcome to submit a maximum of 3 poems to the anthology. Poems should not exceed 40 lines including stanza breaks but not including title.
We prefer unpublished poems. (Poems that appeared only in the Voices newsletter poetry page or were written at Voices workshops and published online or in Voices workshop chapbooks are considered unpublished).
Translations of living poets' poems are acceptable as long as the translations have not been previously published. The translator must have the permission of the poet if it is not the same person.
Fancy or unconventional formatting is not encouraged.
