Call For Submissions – The Plum Tree Tavern

plum tree

Plum Tree Tavern invites original and previously unpublished poetry reflecting themes of nature, environment and ecology. Please submit seasonal work: in season.Works of up to 24 lines sounds about right. Longer works of eco-poetry will also be considered, especially of witness, testimony and protest.

Work that focuses on the image in nature as it exists is greatly preferred over the writer’s judgments of the image. Except in connection with farming and working the land, Plum Tree is little interested in poems that focus on human activity or human nature. No attachments, except by prior arrangement.
