Deadline is December 1, 2014.
From the Call:
“We like vibrant language with stunning imagery and emotional impact. Send us work that surprises and resonates.

Purple Passion Press seeks to include a variety of distinctive voices.
What we accept:
- Poetry: Up to 40 lines.
- Poetry: Submit 1 – 3 poems.
