UPDATE 5/3/2020: Current status of “The Pandemic Poetry Anthology,” project. We have twenty (20) submissions to date! The deadline is May 31st. I challenge everyone who has not participated to hurry, and join this historic book project! Thank you to all who have submitted their poem. We have some very thought-provoking and enlightening work!
I got word today from Houston poet/author/teatrista Manuel Nava Leal that a book of poetry created during and about the times of the Coronavirus is in the works. The poetry can be targeted at adults, children, or familia.
This collection is to be published under the title, “The Pandemic Poems.”
Deadline for submissions is May 31st and can be sent to Manuel thru FB Messenger, or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This book will be submitted to the Library of Congress so that it will remain in our history.
Profits from purchases of this collection will benefit two non-profits which will be determined prior to publication and will be announced.
Also, if you need it, Manuel is willing to help you in prep and editing for submission and you can contact him for that, too.
So, stay connected to DosCentavos.net as we will surely hear more about this project.
