Who is on the plum tree?
April has been declared International poetry month. My friends over on the Bardo Group are celebrating with all things poetry. Plum Tree Books will participate in this by publishing a new anthology of poetry.
And because we love all things children and all things poetry, I would like to bring together two marvellous themes: International poetry month with the recent celebration of Mother’s Day. Our anthology will celebrate all things MOTHER! Would you like to write a poem for your mother? Are you a mother who would love to encapsulate the experience of mothering? Would you love to write a poem for your child that will live forever? Or maybe, you are a child who would love to send in a poem about your mother?
This anthology will celebrate the essence of mothering. Send in an image to accompany your work, if possible…(details below)
I am also calling on artists and illustrators who would like to participate by helping us to illustrate this anthology with original work. All copyright and acknowledgement will, of course, be accredited to all contributors. Submission automatically licences Plum Tree Books to publish your work for the sole purpose of this publication only, but you always own your copyright.
We will also promote you!
Please submit your contributions to: email@example.com
This anthology will be published as an e-book first. Proceeds of sales will go towards seeing your work in print. This will make a wonderful coffee table gift, or to use for self-promotion.
Encourage your children to participate and send in their drawings too!I will also be looking for the perfect image for the book cover.
All submitted images should have full copyright permission and be in high resolution (At least 300 dpi’s). Images should be scanned.
Submissions by June 5th
Publication as e-book by July 5th
Help us make this a thing of beauty and a joy forever!
Best, Niamh Clune
