Poems should touch on the historical or the personal, whether about a public figure or your own sister, mother, wife, or daughter, and that woman’s wartime role, whether as a spectator watching soldiers tear through her crops, as a war nurse patching eyes and limbs, as a fighter, or as a peacemaker trying to stop the fighting. We’re seeking personal connections and personal details. We don’t want biographies-with-line-breaks; we want heart, soul, humanity, essence, passion, intrigue, duty, pain, laughter. Kudos for diversity; we especially want to hear from People of Color and Indigenous Peoples. Specific subjects will be given more preference than general subjects.
