Two Worlds, Called Home, Stolen Generations: Calling All Poets

Blue Hand Books NEWS: Calling All Poets

Blue Hand Books is seeking poetry submissions for an upcoming publication; book four in our collection, The Lost Children book series.  Author Patricia Busbee is editing this volume. (The title of the new book is still taking shape). We are interested in both emerging and established writers.  Heartfelt and genuine writing is valued.  We are looking for pieces that address the often overlooked and complex histories of American Indian First  Nations.  Areas of particular interest are Indian-boarding schools,  adoption and foster care.  We are also interested in these issues from a contemporary perspective. 

There is an August 1st deadline. We accept poems of any length. Send up to three poems. We like free verse, prose poems, experimental and traditional forms. Please include a bio with your submission. Also include a URL to your blog or website, if applicable.  Please send submissions to Book Editor patriciabusbeewriter@gmail.com or BHB Publisher larahentz@yahoo.com.

A few ideas to spark your creative process: Buried trauma, raw truths, ancestors, ancestral memory, reclaiming, reimagining, the healing power of the land, coming home, full circle and future generations.

[Writers will be compensated in book copies.]

ADOPTION TRUTH

As the single largest unregulated industry in the United States, adoption is viewed as a benevolent action that results in the formation of “forever families.”
The truth is that it is a very lucrative business with a known sales pitch. With profits last estimated at over $1.44 billion dollars a year, mothers who consider adoption for their babies need to be very aware that all of this promotion clouds the facts and only though independent research can they get an accurate account of what life might be like for both them and their child after signing the adoption paperwork.

Our Fault? (no)
