It’s zombie season!  In a few weeks, zombies (along with superheroes, vampires, monsters and princesses) will invade our neighborhoods, but for now  check out “Zombie Blues Villanelle,” by Tim Seibles over at Blog This Rock.  Seibles is also the judge for the 2014 Split this Rock poetry contest.  Check out the submission guidelines here.  The deadline is November 1.

CFS: Split this Rock

Split this Rock is looking for poems from poets who write in the “socially engaged vein.”  In 2009, Split this Rock began publishing poems from poets who participated in the festival.  However, they recently opened up their call to anyone who writes about today’s social issues.

Check out the guidelines here.  And while you are at Split this Rock, check out the recently posted poems by Jericho Brown and Remica  Bingham.
