Rewiring History Project

The Rewiring History Project is about the dynamic ways that living poets respond to and reshape the way we see the past. We are seeking submissions for an anthology Other Countries to be published in October 2014.

We want the best of today’s writing about history: any period in any country, any theme, any style, any form. We want to see your unique takes on the past that challenge the way that we see the world today. We want to hear about what the official version left out and are particularly keen to hear from underrepresented voices.

Deadline: 30th June 2014. 
Take a look at our Frequently Asked Questions to find out more;

we’re interested in how today’s poets respond to any version of history: any period, any theme, any viewpoint, any style. Poets engage with the past in endlessly creative ways (it’s somewhere between a necessity and an occupational hazard) and we want to showcase the best of this in fresh and challenging ways. In particular we want the voices that got lost or silenced; the truths the official version left out; alternative viewpoints that challenge and rewire all our yesterdays.
