SANDRO PENNA & THE HAPPY FEW – «Mosaici» Call for Poems & Essays

The year 2017 marks the 40th anniversary of the death of Sandro Penna (Perugia, 1906 – Roma, 1977).

To commemorate this event «Mosaici – Learned Online Journal of Italian Poetry» invites poets and scholars to submit unpublished work, in Italian or English, in the following categories:

1) A single or more poems (up to a maximum of four) inspired by Penna’s life, work or themes of his poetry and prose
2) A short essay (1000-2500 words) on Penna’s life, work or themes of his poetry and prose

For both categories we encourage to investigate the specific subject of «the joy of living», which is one of Penna’s privileged themes and one that strongly defines his poetics.

Send your submission to matteofantuzzi@yahoo.it & (in CC) mosaici.journal@gmail.com
Please, note that it must include your biographical details and, for the essay, also an abstract of max. 150 words.

Proposal will be considered for publication by two or more members of the editorial board.

Deadline: 30 April 2017.
