Alternating Current Press

At the intersection of science and poetry, strange things happen. There exists such a bizarre human experience and shared understanding, that we can’t help but admire and celebrate it. That’s what we’re hoping to achieve with this anthology. We want your poetry, prose poems, and hybrid work (that leans toward poetry) for an anthology of poetry about scientists. We are looking for the fundamentals of those scientists, a feeling, an atmosphere, something humanistic that breathes life into their beings, into their work. 

We are not looking for “biographies with line breaks,” and we are also not looking for poems about just science in general or “all scientists” or “all astronauts,” &c., combined. We want specific poems about specific scientists. Heavier consideration will be placed on poetry about female scientists, scientists of color, and more obscure subjects. Scientists can be dead or alive, and “scientist” is a very liberal term that can range anywhere from biologists to computer techs to inventors to chemists and beyond. Please note that we are not seeking prose for this collection. 

SUBMIT HERE.


Because we do not want more than 2 poems about the same scientist within the same collection, once 2 poems have been accepted about the same person, we will list that scientist’s name here, and we will no longer be reading pieces about that individual (so please don’t submit them, once we are closed for them!). We are no longer looking for:


Galileo Galilei
Marie Curie

This is a paid anthology.

There is no reading fee. We will accept approximately 40-50 poems for this collection, depending on length.

Deadline 1st June 2018
