Sheila-Na-Gig online’s Ekphrastic Poetry Challenge Deadline: Sept. 30
Hey, Poet Friends —
We’ve already received lots of submissions, but I forgot to send out a reminder for Sheila-Na-Gig online’s Ekphrastic Challenge. I’ve extended the deadline a bit — just to Sept. 30, so if you meant to submit work for this one, send it in right away! Check out the details below. This is going to be a great anthology.
I co-founded the small press poetry magazine Sheila-Na-Gig in California in 1990. I ran the press for 10 years, producing 14 print copies of the journal. I now hold a Ph.D. in 20th Century American Literature from Ohio University and an MFA in poetry from the University of Washington. I am currently an Associate Professor of English at Ohio University Southern, where I teach courses in composition, American literature, and creative writing. My poetry, creative nonfiction, and critical essays have appeared, or are forthcoming, in The Brock Review, Proteus, Rattle, Spillway, and the critical anthologies, The Body in Medical Culture; On the Literary Nonfiction of Nancy Mairs; and Stephen King’s Contemporary Classics: Reflections on the Modern Master of Horror.
