This will be associated with a new "Dwarf Stars" award which will be determined by a membership vote on the best of the anthology.
To be eligible, the poem must be 10 lines or less and first published in 2005. The submission deadline is August 31, 2006. Submissions should be sent to "dwarfstars2006" at "hotmail" dot "com". There is no limit to the number of poems submitted by a single poet. All submissions should be accompanied by publishing credits.
We're aiming for an anthology of approximately thirty short-short poems and September 30, 2006 is the target date for mailing the anthology to SFPA members. Contributors will receive a contributor's copy of the anthology.
In addition, I'm asking for "suggested" poems by others that they read in 2005 and think would be good Dwarf Stars candidates. I will consider them also, in addition to a short-list of poems I've been jotting down while reading various publications.
Please help me make Dwarf Stars 2006 a stellar anthology of short-short sf poetry by sending me the best of your published work from 2005 and/or a list of your favorites by others.
