Dwarf Stars 2010 - Call for Submissions

Following Samantha Henderson's example and boosting the signal for the 2010 Dwarf Stars editor, Joshua Gage. Please feel free to repost widely! 

Dwarf Stars is the Science Fiction Poetry Association's yearly edited anthology of short-short poetry. We are trying to find the best speculative short poetry of 10 lines or less published in 2009. We define “speculative” as “science fiction, fantasy, horror, mythic or any combination or variation of the above.” The deadline for nominations for 2009 poems is August 31, 2010.

This is what you can do to help.

1. Send us your 2009 short poems of 10 lines or less.
2. Send us recommendations of 2009 short poems of 10 lines or less that you've read and think are deserving along with publication information and the e-mail addresses of the poets, if you have them.
3. There is no limit to the number of poems you can send.
4. You do not need to be a member to send poems/recommendations.

Send these poems to us at You do not need to be a member of the Science Fiction Poetry Association to send poems/recommendations. Please include the words "Dwarf Stars Submission" in the title of the e-mail.

We are trying to gather the largest pool of quality 2009 published 10-lines-or-less poems possible so we can select poems that stand out above the rest and are reflective of 2009 in very short poetry.

Thanks in advance for your help.
