Untold Volumes: Feminist Theology Poetry Submissions
Submit your poetry to Christian Feminism Today’s feminist theology poetry series, Untold Volumes.
Our fourth call for poems will be open June 1 through July 15, 2020. For the first time we will be accepting simultaneous submissions, but please notify us immediately if your poem is picked up somewhere else. We endeavor to notify for this round by September 15, 2020.
All submissions to Untold Volumes are evaluated by anonymized peer review. Over the first three calls, we accepted roughly 31% of submissions received.
Poems considering aspects 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 of documents submitted. Preferred formats are Word docs and PDFs for text-only poetry and 300 dpi JPGs for graphic poetry.
