How do you define love? What does it look like to you? Is it merely physical, or emotional, or is it something broader, something indefinable? Is it a feeling, a fact, or a myth? What has it meant in your life? Can we live without love? What about loving others? How have you done it & what does it look like? Sacrifice? Chemistry? What? A love of nature? A love of an idea or ideal? Just about anything love-related will be considered, even if obliquely referenced.
We're looking for all your good stuff about love. While we don't want pure eroticism, we do welcome tender physical or emotional glimpses into this beautiful concept.
Open readings will close on April 2nd.
Prose poetry & creative nonfiction, memoir will be welcome. Up to 1500 words for creative nonfiction. Prose poetry limits should be around 100 words or so, but we're open to just about anything passing as a prose poem.
