Untold Volumes: Feminist Theology Poetry Submissions
Submit your poetry to Christian Feminism Today’s feminist theology poetry series, Untold Volumes.
Our fifth call for poems will be open February 14th through March 31st, 2021. We will again be accepting simultaneous submissions, but please notify us immediately if your poem is picked up somewhere else. We will endeavor to notify for this round by May 31st, 2021.
All submissions to Untold Volumes are evaluated by anonymized peer review. Over the first four calls, we accepted roughly 30% of submissions received.
Poems considering aspects of faith, including Christianity, Islam, Judaism, other faith traditions, and an interfaith approach are welcome.
Send us your revisionism and remembrance, celebrations and speculations, doubts, fury, psalms, midrash, epistles, orisons, and any other poetic explorations of feminist religious thought.
Traditional and experimental forms of poetry are welcome.
Texts in languages other than English, accompanied by translation, will be considered.
We have a preference for poems willing to ask difficult questions and engage with challenges from both theology and contemporary religious practice.
Poems should be original works that have not been previously published. If selected, poets grant CFT non-exclusive rights to publish poems on the CFT website and in an anthology. All other rights revert to the poet.
Prospective poets may submit 1-3 poems to poetry editor, Joann Renee Boswell via Google form. Please do not include your name in the text or title of documents submitted. It is important that you title your document as just the title of your poem, do not include your name. Preferred formats are Word docs and PDFs for text-only poetry and 300 dpi JPGs for graphic poetry.
