BLACK DOG & ONE-EYED PRESS is currently seeking submissions of up to five poems. We anticipate the 2021 print publication of a book of paintings along with poems which speak to or in some way reflect upon the state of the world in 2020 and the ways in which we, as individuals and as societies, have responded, and/or how we might imagine going forward.
The paintings will be selected from a series which artist and educator Bill Liebeskindbegan a few weeks into the Covid lockdown in NYC. Each painting shows someone in a mask. To view the paintings, please visit Liebeskind’s Instagram feed: Bill Liebeskind, or his Covid blog here https://billliebeskind.medium.com/91-divoc-1cb1020197de
All styles of poetry are welcome.
