We are very proud to announce our first house poet, the award-winning writer, editor (and baker) Fiona Wright. Fiona has accepted the challenge to curate and produce three rebellious collections set to excite those poetic pens of yours.
The collections in the works are: Epistles at Dawn – poems in the form of correspondence from one poet to another. Swear Jar – in the poetic tradition of Samuel L. Jackson. Bout Rimés – 17th Century parlour game for the decidedly un-faint of heart. Parlez-vous awesome?
Accepted poems will be printed in three final collection and feature on the Seizure site. For more detailed information and to submit your work head to our Submission Portal.
Fiona Wright is a Sydney poet, whose first collection, Knuckled, (Giramondo 2011) won the Dame Mary Gilmore Poetry Award in 2012.
