The reading period for LANTERN REVIEW Issue 6 is now open!
Whereas their previous issue was themed, Issue 6 will be a general (i.e. not-themed) issue. If you refrained from submitting last year because of the theme, they hope you'll consider sending some work this time! Please note: all past contributors, except for those who are currently on staff or whose work appeared in Issue 5, are eligible to submit for Issue 6. They will be accepting submissions for Issue 6 through August 1st.
Please note that, with the exception of visual art and community voices proposals, you must use their online form to submit your work.
To begin, please read carefully through their guidelines, which can be found at: http://www.lanternreview.com/submissionsguidelines.html
At the bottom of that page, you will find a button that takes you to their submissions form.
Lantern Review aims to provide a virtual space in which to showcase Asian American poetry and to engage with issues relevant to its production and dissemination.
In their mission statement, they "seek to publish expertly crafted poetry in a variety of forms and aesthetics, including traditional and experimental pieces, hybrid and multimedia projects, and new translations. We welcome submissions from anglophone writers of all ethnic backgrounds whose work has a vested interest in issues relevant to the Asian diaspora in North America, as well as work created collaboratively in a community context."
I was interviewed for the Lantern Review earlier this January by Wendy Chin-Tanner and my poem Pen|Sword appeared in their fourth issue. I strongly encourage you to consider submitting work to them!
