Invitations to Submit Work For Rainbow Poetry Anthology Now Open


Inspired by the quality of poets at the last Pride Festival poetry reading, Michael Owen is asking the queer community to bring heart, soul, fire, humour and clarity through poetry.

Obscurity and intelligentsia not recommended. Owen says submitters should “bring your heart and soul to your work, to your voice, make it matter.”

The anthology organisers welcome submissions of 7-10 poems per person with a maximum collective wordage of 3500 approx. Close off date for submission is the 15th October 2015.


Owen asks that all work submitted  is fully edited prior to submission. There is no guarantee of any or all poems being published but at least three people will be respectfully assessing the quality of voice and value for publishing within this collection.

Owen asks that “any skilled computer whiz/editor who can help template said collection, please be in touch”

Likewise any philanthropist/s who wish to donate money solely for publishing (all else is unpaid and voluntary) with a hope of Pride/Out Games 2016 date please contact: Michael Owen: email- or 09 3769599. All poetry submissions to:
