Cordite Poetry Review 108: DEDICATION

Date: Sun September 4 2022 9:00 am to Sun December 4 2022 5:00 pm

Submissions are now open to Cordite Poetry Review issue 108: DEDICATION.

This issue asks for your devotions, your gestures of esteem and affection, your hot takes on the solemn and fanatical. It delights in submissions seeking abandonment and surrender to a goal or cause.

This issue will also explore how people, places and things are set apart, elevated, given story and purpose. Bring your lyrical adorations spanning the earnest and satirical, your odes, toasts, homages and exaltations, as well poems that decode ceremonious inscriptions, plaques, prefixes, para-texts, subtweets, tokens and tokenism.

This issue asks how DEDICATION shapes your world. Is it motivated by theatrics or humility?

Either way, we wish we had yours.


This podcast sheds some insight on how Cordite Poetry Review (and Cordite Books) works.
