Alehouse Press is now considering queries for short essays and book reviews for the next issue of Alehouse. Essay topics focus on the current state of poetry, the work of particular poets, plus other appropriate topics of interest. The 2009 issue will feature essays on African-American poets and poetry.
Book reviews focus on work published in the past few years, but may also include older, under-appreciated work that reviewers may want to promote to readers. Again, for our 2009 issue, special interest will be on reviews of books by or about African-American poets.
Alehouse essays run approximately 500-2000 words, book reviews approximately 500-1000 words per title. Please contact Alehouse for book review guidelines: editor(at)alehousepress.com
