Found this Call for Submissions in my inbox today. Thought I'd share. It's for anyone, not just the previously published or those in academia. So get those in!
"CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
I am seeking submissions for Buffy Verse, an anthology of quality poetry inspired by Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I am looking for lively verse that engages with the Buffy mythos. For example, you may choose to revisit a certain episode, examine the intersection of some aspect of Buffy and real life, or simply write a poem with a relevant Buffy epigraph.
Submissions should be sent either as a Word document or pasted in the body of an email to me at erinlyndalmartin [at sign] gmail. No cover letter or bio is necessary at this time. Please put "submission" somewhere in your subject line.
I will be reading submissions until August 1, 2011.
I have already sent a proposal for this book to several agents and presses, but if any of you are involved in publishing and would like to discuss this project, please feel free to contact me.
I'm looking forward to reading your work!
