a local anthology looking for work

Deadline: Midnight, August 1, 2008.

FloriDaDa is seeking submissions to represent the current state of poetry in, and inspired by, Florida. We're seeking unusual or experimental poetry related to this subject.
We hope to publish FloriDaDa with Rock Press as a book-length paperback in the fall of 2008. Funds are quite limited for this project, so a waiver of permission fees would be appreciated. We intend for this to be the first volume in an occasional series of collections that will give respected poets a chance to lead the way for writers and readers involved with Florida as a creative crucible.
There will be four categories for submissions:
1. Natives (poets actually born here)
2. Transplants (poets who moved here)
3. Passing Through (visitors or people who once lived here who have written poetry about Florida)
4. Snow Bards (part-time residents)
Send up to 5 poems in a single word document to
Put your name and email address on every piece.
In the subject heading of the email, state the category you are submitting to, which means either Native, Transplant, Passing Through, or Snow Bards
In the body of the email, include a bio of no more than 100 words.
Please also sign the attached document and send it to:
Richard Ryal, P.O. Box 770925, Coral Springs, FL 33077-0925
In signing the attached document, you warrant that you are the sole owner of the rights granted and that your material does not infringe upon the copyrights or other rights of anyone. If you do not control these rights, we ask that you submit another piece to which you possess sole rights.
