In support of our Avantexte Press, which will publish an anthology of pwoermds soon, The Bleed will be an online journal for visual, concrete and experimental poetics.
Please submit 4 or 5 visual (including asemic works), concrete or experimental lexical poems to contact@avantexte.
Beyond the work itself, the editors (who are myself and Mara Hernandez), would like to request that you include the following:
- A brief statement regarding your work. This can be a general artists' statement or a specific discussion of the work submitted. Submissions that do not include said will be disregarded. Please note that we reserve the right to make minor edits for clarity and grammar. If heavy editing is required we will run the edited version by you before going to print.
- A photo of yourself.
- A bio. Please include links to your personal website(s)/blog(
Note that we are also very interested in receiving critical works on visual poetry, so don't hesitate to send us your ruminations on the form! And don't hesitate to pass the word along to fellow friends and artists not included on these mail lists.
