Borrowed Stories is Meraki Press' debut Poetry Anthology.
We are currently accepting submissions with the theme “Borrowed Stories.” Submissions should all be in the form of observational poetry. This means, all should be about stories you observed and how they impacted you, but that you were not the main character in. They should be non-fiction, but there is room for artistic license. There are no form requirements.
When you are submitting your original work, please take careful note that your spacing, line breaks, and formal elements of your poem are correct. Please limit your submission to one to three poems.
Original Artwork Welcome
We are looking for thematic artwork that conveys your view on a story. How you have perceived or witnessed events unfold before you. All mediums are welcome, from photography to painting and drawing.
