The Open Doors Poetry Zine is a publication created in celebration of Jack Wiler’s poem “Divina Is Divina.” It is a collection of thresholds; it is a collection of names. It is doors turned into poetry.
You might ask, “How does one turn a door into poetry?” To which I would say, “Any way you would have a door become a poem.” You might…
Write a poem to, for, or about a door
Write a poem about exits and entrances
Paint words on the surface of a door
Glue jewels, glitter, and your words on a door
Carve characters into the surface of a door
Set a door on fire
Find a bathroom stall door with already existing poetry graffiti
or discover a door with so much character that it is poetry without needing words
Work accepted will immediately be published in the online Open Doors Poetry Zine.
A portion of the what appears on the online zine will be selected for the print version of The Open Doors Poetry Zine.
Those who submit work will receive two copies of the book and a letter of great thanks. Additional books will be made and left on the door-steps of unexpected poetry readers.
Submission for this years issue will be accepted until January 1, 2011. (In other words, your "door poems" are due on the threshold of the new year.)
