The Sound Of Poets Cooking - an anthology cookbook

This just in from Richard Krawiec:

I'm looking for poems for an anthology. The website and info is below. Please send me something or pass it along to anyone you think is interested.

The Sound Of Poets Cooking - an anthology cookbook

WRITERS HELPING THE COMMUNITY

These are difficult times for everyone, and in an effort to produce a fun anthology/cookbook that will also address the needs of writers and the communities they live in, we are seeking poems that make reference to an item that might be used for food. The poems do not need to be about eating or cooking, they only have to mention something that can be eaten. There is no cost to submit one poem. If you wish to submit more than one, the fee is $1 per page. If you are submitting haiku, you may submit three at no cost. If wish to submit more than three haiku, the fee is $1 per groups of three.

The anthology will feature both well-known and lesser-known writers. Proceeds from the sale of the book will go to provide writers grants to teach free writing workshops in their communities. There will be a simple, one-page application form at the back of the anthology to apply for this program. These grants will be available to all writers, not just the ones whose work appears in this anthology.

Although we are primarily looking for poems, if you have a favorite recipe, simple to moderate in preparation and cost, feel free to send that along as well.

Hope they accept Italian Tankas with translation ;-)

Great Blog by the way!

Hi Curtis, It's Helen. Yes, I entered this contest after seeing it both here and on Kay Byer's blog.

Good Mules support the Heels. LOL

Yeah, I'm entering a poem or two. I'm currently tweaking a free verse poem that I'd like to submit. It's not ready though...needs to simmer a bit longer.
