Wanted: Dangerous Poetry [US]:
"Violence has become an unavoidable subject for American poets. Too much contemporary poetry is platitudinous, full of blandly uplifting and usually self-congratulatory sentiments. We need darker, more dangerous poetry—not sensational but willing to probe uncomfortable areas."
—Dana Gioia, 1995


Is poetry dangerous? What can poetry do that advertising, political campaigns, fiction, reportage can't? Who decides what a 'dangerous' poem or poet is?

Seeking contributions for an anthology of Dangerous Poetry. Poets whose work is selected for inclusion will then write a brief (500-1000 word) essay on what makes poetry dangerous—their piece in particular and poetry at large. Is formal poetry dangerous? Is free verse dangerous? Is LANGUAGE poetry more dangerous than surrealist poetry? Can the State trust poets?

Dangerous times demand dangerous poetry. Deadline Dec. 1, 2005. Overseas submissions welcome via e-mail [Robin Kemp: rkemp1 @ KENNESAW.EDU] with prior query.

Send mss. and SASE to:
Dangerous Poetry Anthology
6656 Morning Dove Place
Jonesboro, GA 30236-1319 USA

"Danger, Will Robinson, danger!"
