Some of the snippets you’ll read are true, some invented, but all are intended for some kind of audience. It’s a little bit like sneaking a look inside someone’s journal, or wandering through a garden of secrets.

From time to time, Porkbelly Press and Sugared Water‘s staff team up to create an anthology of works related to a theme or cluster of images as source inspiration. We’re working in limited and small edition for our anthos, and often consider a range of work from lyric poetry to short essay and illustrated narrative. We collect the unusual, the odd, and those curiosities that ask you to pause, look, and linger a while. The covers are produced digitally or by serigraph.
Our Emily antho call is currently open, once again working with Porkbelly Press’ staff: Emily is a collection of poetry&prose inspired by the works, life, and letters of Emily Dickinson. The anthology is to be split into several sections, each loosely clustered around one of the major themes&image in her works. We’re looking for all kinds of work for this anthology, be it poetry, prose, creative nonfiction, artwork, doodles, notes, short critical essays, illustrated narratives, comics, or illustrations.
