Submissions are now open for the February 2017 issue of Plumwood Mountain journal, guest edited by Harriet Tarlo, who writes:
I invite poets from all over the world to contribute to the next issue of Plumwood Mountain, to consider in particular how our poetry might cross all boundaries: national, generic, spatial and disciplinary in its exploration of the ecopoetic. In particular how might we embrace the environmental/ecocritical emphasis on hybridities, entanglements, materialities and liminalities of the naturalcultural world (Haraway) in our own radical and playful manipulations of language and form.
Submissions close: 3 November 2016
Harriet Tarlo is Reader in Creative Writing at Sheffield Hallam University, editor of The Ground Aslant: An Anthology of Radical Landscape Poetry and HOW2‘s Ecopoetics Feature. Her most recent poetry collection is Field.
