Poetry of the American Southwest, No. 2, Persona Poems

Posted by Sally Clark on Friday, October 23, 2015
Poetry of the American Southwest, No. 2, Persona Poems
 
Editors Scott Wiggerman and Cindy Huyser are looking for well-crafted poems written in personae associated with the Southwest region of the United States — poems that demonstrate a strong connection to the land, history, and/or culture of the region. Personae can be famous, infamous, or relatively unknown; historical figures or characters from documented myth or folklore, living or dead. No stereotypes or bland generalizations, please! We are looking for a wide spectrum that reflects the rich heritage of the Southwest: Buffalo Soldiers, pioneers, tribal chiefs, artists, midwives, vaqueros, homesteaders, women who passed as men, ranchers, explorers, miners, lawmen, berdaches, outlaws, entrepreneurs, rabbis, preachers, curanderas, figures from Native American myths. . . .
 
While there is room for the well-known—Geronimo, O’Keeffe, La Llorona, Esteban, Kit Carson, etc.—we would very much like to see poems in the personae of lesser-known figures such as Chester Nez, Bill Pickett, Willie Velasquez, Kitty Leroy, Hoodoo Brown, LaDonna Harris, Henry Trust, and Jacob de Cordova. Surprise us! Sing to us in the voices of those forgotten in the stubble of history.
 
Only poems written in a persona will be considered. The speaker should clearly not be the poet-author. Think of the persona poem as one which reveals the character of the speaker, allowing the reader to empathize with him or her. For additional information on the persona poem, including sample poems, go to http://www.poetryarchive.org/glossary/persona
 
Deadline: November 30, 2015.
