Submissions Call -
blue moon cut & paste poetry journal has become bloom oon surrealist
journal. In our first issue, due this summer, the surrealist theme will
be loose allowing for personal interpretation. Loosely taken, most poetry is
surreal because surrealism was originally intended to be primarily
revolutionary - returning writing and the arts to the proletariat and
subverting the bourgeois upper-class. In later issues we'll look for more
strictly surreal and dada writing.
Still looking for a few items to fill out issue 1. No fixed deadline but soon
is good.Submissions welcome via firstname.lastname@example.org
or email for current post address.
Please be advised we have a new info website at www.angelfire.com/indie/bloomoon.
