DVAN and Texas Tech University Press are pleased to announce that their book series will be open for submissions from early career and emerging poets from December 13 through February 28. For this reading cycle, we will be reviewing poetry in English, from the Vietnamese-American and broader Southeast Asian community. Manuscripts will be given full consideration by TTUP and writers and academics from the DVAN network.
● Full book length manuscript (60-90 poems)
● Manuscript must not yet be published
● Please include an author bio with your submission
We are looking for any and all kinds of stories and modes of expression. There is no singular story from the Diaspora and Asian-American community. We are looking for originality of voice, acuity of subject, emotional resonance, as well as themes and perspectives that have not often been centered in contemporary literature. As a nonprofit University Press, TTUP is unburdened by the commercial concerns of major publishers.
