Wining, Dining, & (Off-)Rhyming

Black Lawrence Press (one of my favorites) has a submission call out for poems with accompanying recipes for an upcoming anthology, Feast: Poetry and Recipes for a Full Seating at Dinner. How fun is that! Here's what they want, in their own words:

Guidelines: Black Lawrence Press welcomes established as well as emerging writers to submit a poem and an accompanying recipe to Feast. Both a poem and a recipe are required for the submission to be considered.

A few notes:
1) The poem should evoke the spirit of a toast, which has been historically shared as an expression of celebration, goodwill or honor. We would like these “poem toasts” to link to some of the following wider themes: the value of celebration, good company, the enjoyment of food, and commiseration.
2) There is no word limit.
3) The recipe should be appropriate for 6 – 10 servings, and be tagged for one of the following sections: cocktails, appetizers, main courses, or desserts.

Multiple submissions are allowed!

Deadline: June 30, 2012

See their website for a better description of the project and its goals.
