Another update on the Rimbaud anthology. I'm pleased to report that I have gained permission from the estate of William Burroughs to reprint the 1960 Burroughs/Corso collaboration "Everywhere March Your Head" -- based on Rimbaud's "To A Reason" -- in the anthology. Very exciting news! So if you want to share space with Bill Burroughs and Gregory Corso, send me your best stuff. Submissions to rimbaudsubs@gmail.com

I have had an overwhelming response to my call for submissions for poetry and prose about/to/inspired by Rimbaud. At this rate I might have to close submissions a little earlier than I had first anticipated. Maybe around March. But at this stage I'll leave it at May 30th.

Poets so far to have work accepted are: AJ Kaufman, Billy Jones, Mike Estabrook, Ken Trimble, Corey Mesler, Jeremy Reed, Howie Good, Alan Catlin, Karl Gallagher, Ann Menebroker, Jacques Higelin, David McLean, Valli Poole, Dan Provost, Keith Abbott, Catfish McDaris, Jack Shaw, Kris Hemensley, Heath Row, Matt Borkowski, Dave Roskos, Michael Dransfield, Rene Char, Lea Harper, Robert Sweredo, Dana Wilde and Luis Cuauhtémoc Berriozabal.

Keep em' comin'!

In June, 2014 Blind Dog Press will publish an anthology of poems honouring the life and work of Arthur Rimbaud. The tentative title for this collection is "Fierce Invalids: A Small Press Tribute To Arthur Rimbaud".

If you have any Rimbaud themed or related work -- either poetry or prose -- submit it to rimbaudsubs@gmail.com Include your mailing address and a brief bio written in the third person. Previously published work is OK, just state where it first appeared.

Submissions will remain open until around May, 2014.
