Rattle call for submissions -- poets of faith

Issue #45 – Poets of Faith – Deadline: April 15th

Our fall issue will be dedicated to Poets of Faith—and by that we mean poets who are adherents to a specific religious faith tradition. In a slight revision to the guidelines, the poems themselves need not be about faith, so long as the poet qualifies. After reading an early batch of submissions, we realized that your spirituality will be embodied somehow in your poetry, even if that’s not what you’re writing about explicitly, and it’s much more interesting to explore the subtle ways that faith affects the work. 

So if you consider yourself a Poet of Faith, see our guidelines page, but the gist is this: Send up to six poems on any subject and a note explaining why you qualify to by April 15th.

 Vermont College of Fine Arts  (VCFA), a national center for graduate education in the fine arts, and Vivian Dorsel '06, founder and publisher of upstreet literary magazine, announce the creation of the upstreet Scholarship Fund, a need-based grant for writers attending the MFA in Writing program. The $5,000 scholarship will be awarded to up to two students annually.
Vivian Dorsel, a graduate of Vermont College of Fine Arts, established this scholarship in 2013 to help meritorious and deserving writers attend her alma mater; in particular, those who might not be able to attend without scholarship support.  As a graduate of the MFA in Writing program and a long-term supporter of scholarships for VCFA's Postgraduate Writers Conference, Dorsel has a deep understanding of the need for scholarships to help talented and emerging writers pursue their dreams of a writing career.
