Incarnate Muse Press is seeking poems for its second atheist poetry anthology. Confront, question, or deny the god of your youth, the sacred text of your culture. Express your disbelief, disapproval, doubt, or dismay. Looking for honest, thought-provoking poetry daring to speak against the social norm of belief and/or attempting to take the stigma from nonbelief. Interested in nontheism expressed positively rather than solely in opposition to theism. Avoid gratuitous vulgarity and unfocused anger. We feel that atheism is often defined too narrowly and inaccurately. "A theos" means "without god(s)". If there is no god you believe in, if you are not a theist, you are, by literal definition, an atheist. These categories fit anthology also: "humanist", "freethought", "agnostic", "biblical revisionist", "sacrilegious"... Up to 6 poems, SASE. Incarnate Muse c/o Michelle Rhea P.O.Box 5756 Santa Barbara CA 93150 or IncarnateMuse@yahoo.com. (If emailing, put poems in body of text, not as attachment.) Please write "atheist" in your cover letter or email subject title. Pays copies. Deadline July 30, 2008. Need ideas? Send SASE for suggestions.
