Vessel is a new independent magazine exploring poems as vessels.
Drawing on an interest in material culture, and Ursula K. Le Guin’s ‘The Carrier Bag Theory of Fiction’, we’re interested in how poems might also act as vessels, as a ‘tool that brings energy home’, as holder and recipient.
We publish two issues per year in small, DIY-printed runs. Selected excerpts of the magazine will be published online.
We will be accepting submissions for the first issue of Vessel from 1st July 2020. The deadline for submissions is 28th August 2020 – see here for full details on how to submit. We particularly welcome work by BIPOC, LGBTQ+ people, people with disabilities, carers, working class people, and women.
Vessel is edited by Flo Reynolds with guest co-editors, and is produced in the UK. The co-editor for issue 1 is Cat Woodward.
