I'm a contributing editor to the next issue of Consequence — an international literary journal that focuses on the human consequences and realities of war and geopolitical violence, through literature, art, and community events.
We are soliciting submissions from BIPOC artists for the next issue.
Submissions are open till April 15, and we would love your help forwarding this call for submissions to BIPOC artists, writing teachers, and networks you know.
Founded in 2009, Consequence strives to promote a clearer and more nuanced understanding of what’s at stake in choosing to wage war or engage in conflict.
The journal publishes six genres— fiction, poetry, nonfiction, reviews, visual art, and translations.
This issue's guest editors also include Marcus Jackson, Deborah Taffa, Luisa A. Igloria, Daniel Fernandez, and Adonis Brown.
Please help us spread the word to BIPOC artists who may be interested in submitting!

We're so grateful for the ongoing recognition of our anthology Dear Human at the Edge of Time: Poems on Climate Change in the US (Paloma Press, September 2023) .
This sends us the message that besides the science which gives us the important information we need as we face the growing challenges of climate extremity, there truly is also a great need for expressing and hearing our stories and poems.
We're thrilled therefore at this recognition of our efforts in this book, through this message from President Joe Biden at the White House.
Also, here is the link to the interactive DEAR HUMAN microsite (from our collaboration with PoetsForScience and the Wick Poetry Center). We hope that you'll check it out, interact with the poetry prompts there, and share with your own networks.
As we move into 2024— if there are poets who are near enough each other and might consider organizing DEAR HUMAN readings in their area, please let us know so we can see how to be of assistance and how we can help to publicize.
In the meantime, thank you so much again for your words and hopes for a better world!
