Sama Salam UK: cross-cultural poetry book project seeks submissions

The Sama Salam UK project aims to bring together writing from diverse cultural backgrounds but with similar inspirations and influences in one book, and then bring the writers together at nationwide poetry readings. Poetry submissions for the book are welcome from writers resident in the UK of all faiths and ethnic backgrounds, although influences of Islamic cultural traditions, or inspiration from the Arabic, Persian and Urdu poetry traditions should be evident in some way. Writers can submit up to five poems in English, a maximum of 40 lines per poem. Electronic submissions of poetry via email are preferable, with the poems and full contact details contained within the email. Emails should be headed 'Sama Salam UK Poetry' and sent to electraglade@aol.com by 28 February.
