After the Storm: A Poetry and Prose Anthology

Status: Tentative 1 March--31 March 2023

  • Submissions accepted only via on line form (added to this page later). 
  • Submissions accepted from a former contributor or someone recommended by a former contributor.
  • Only one submission per poet/writer.
  • Poem may not exceed 38 lines (includes title author's name and a blank line prior to the poem) flash fiction should not exceed 325 words (bottom line is that the flash fiction must fit on a 5.5"x8.5" page with .5 top and bottom and .75 right and left margins)
  • NOTE: Contributors may purchase the book at a reduced rate upon publication. 
Old Mountain Press  will publish a collection of poetry by a number of poets.  Our goal is to gather enough quality poems and flash fiction for an estimated 50 to 90 page book with the theme to go with the cover (to your right):  Anything about the mountains---the people, the places, the activities, etc., nature, weather, or spring. Would like to have as many poets involved as possible.  Requirements are below. Authors receive publishing credit and retain all rights to their work but agree to the inclusion of their poem in this collection of poetry.
  • Author must have rights to the poem (previously published OK). 
  • Poem may not exceed 38 lines flash fiction may not exceed 325 words (this includes title, spaces, and author's name). 
  • Poetry lines that  exceed 55 letters and spaces will wrap and count as two lines.
  • Initially, only one poem/flash fiction per writer, so give it your best shot:-)
  • Sample title and first line below

Cover photo by: Allison Tomas. Allison and her husband, Don, were at Bear Lake one afternoon and as they were driving past the lake, they saw the rainbow, actually a double rainbow...hard to see the second one in the photo.

NOTE: NOTE: SAVE THE DATE!: I have reserved a room at City Lights BookStore Sylva, NC  on Saturday 11 March 2023 from 1:00 to 3:00 for OMP contributors to read one of their submissions in the OMP Anthology Series. More to come on this as time gets closer. :-)
