AnoMaly Street is a Geelong Writers biannual publication of resonant, contemporary poems that challenge conventions of form, format and voice.

 

We are now accepting submissions for AnoMaly Street Volume 3, No.1.

The Self-Portrait Poem by Maggie Queeney

 

We are looking for poetry that creates jOltS for flatlined minds. We want poems that push boundaries and speak in new ways. We love – but are not limited to – these forms of contemporary poetry: free verse, concrete, erasure and blackout, experimental, prose and conceptual poetry.

  • What happens upon acceptance? If the editor sees fit, poems may undergo a collaborative editing process via email communication/track changes/face to face discussion.
