Call for Submissions--Vallum 15:2 “The Chase”

We chase after dreams, illusions, careers, futures. What are people seeking so desperately? Why? What is the end-goal?

What does it mean to search for something outside one's reach? How does "The Chase" figure in life and in your poetry?

The editors at Vallum are committed to enriching and continuing the tradition of poetry in the present day. We welcome submissions that deepen our understanding of what poetry is and can be. We encourage Indigenous writers, writers of colour, gender non-conforming writers, differently abled writers, LGBTQ writers, writers with mental or physical illnesses, and writers who are otherwise affected by structural inequality to submit their work for consideration.

Send us your best poems! For more information visit: http://www.vallummag.com/upcoming_issues.html
