Burning House Press are excited to welcome MAPULE MOHULATSI as our JULY 2020 guest editor! As of today MAPULE will take over editorship of Burning House Press online for the month of JULY.
Submissions are open from today – and will remain open until 25TH JULY.
MAPULE’S theme for the month is as follows
We sink, we jettison, we dive, we drown. We sink in water. We sink on kitchen floors, in bedrooms. Remember the mushy spot in the garden? When the soft soil enveloped your fingers? We sink in disease and late capitalist terror. We sink in skin. We sink on skin. With the advent of rising sea levels we, yes, all of us, ‘go down below the surface of something, especially of a liquid; become submerged’. We drop downwards. We high and then we low. We deepen.
All submissions should be sent as attachments to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please state the theme and form of your submission in the subject of the email. For example: SINK/POETRY
