call: Poems for Homeless Veterans

Dear Poet Friend,

Doug Johnson of Cave Moon Press has invited me to edit a book that will benefit homeless veterans. The call is below and a pdf attached so you can spread the news far and wide. This is a worthwhile project which will have some big name poets involved and Alfredo Arreguin’s wonderful cover art. (pdf of call here). ę­„Footsteps Poems for Homeless Veterans Edited by Paul Nelson and Doug Johnson April 2015-September 2015 Send Submission to: by September 30, 2015.
Cave Moon Press is requesting original poems centered around the theme of footsteps. Take license in interpreting whose footsteps you honor. Translations welcome. We will also be checking with past contributors to the blog about reprinting their pieces. This book is to honor the people instead of the causes. Cars wage war on the environment. Politics change like the newspaper wrapping fish. The invisible still wander. Write to honor the ignored.

​Please feel free to put the call out to poets you know. The deadline is in 8 days.

Thanks for considering sending work.


Paul Nelson​
