Submission Guidelines – Issue 24

“The Poetics of Space”

Issue 24 will be based on the ideas of Gaston Bachelard, from his book of the same name.  Amazon says:

Thirty years since its first publication in English, French philosopher Gaston Bachelard’s The Poetics of Space is one of the most appealing and lyrical explorations of home. Bachelard takes us on a journey, from cellar to attic, to show how our perceptions of houses and other shelters shape our thoughts, memories, and dreams.


  1. The House. From Cellar to Garret. The Significance of the Hut
  2. House and Universe
  3. Drawers, Chest and Wardrobes
  4. Nests
  5. Shells
  6. Corners
  7. Miniature
  8. Intimate Immensity
  9. The Dialectics of Outside and Inside
  10. The Phenomenology of Roundness

You don’t have to read Bachelard and take notes, but we are looking for poems that explore the concepts of “Space” and “Home.” We also welcome submissions of art and photography on the same theme.
