Here’s Landing Press’s new project for 2021: an anthology of poems about housing
Whether you own a house, rent or are homeless, housing is a source of nostalgia and comfort, a source of stress and fear, a changing landscape in Aotearoa New Zealand. We want to hear anything you have to say about housing.
We want poems by people who have written a lot. We want poems by people who have never written before but have something to say. If you haven’t written before and would like some help, we’ll help you.
You can send us up to 3 poems. Maximum length of each poem 40 lines. Put each poem on a separate page, and with each poem, include your name and contact details (email address, postal address and ph no). There also might be a small story behind your poem you want to include.
Send your poems to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 18 June 2021.
And please forward this information to anyone who might be interested.
We plan to publish this anthology in October 2021. All writers included in the anthology will get a complimentary copy of the book.
Landing Press is a small Wellington publisher of poems that many people can enjoy. Our most recent book, Somewhere a cleaner, is a collection of poems by cleaners.
