me in the piazza

I'm a writer, publishing both as SJ Rozan and, with Carlos Dews, as Sam Cabot. (I'm Sam, he's Cabot.) Here you can find links to my almost-daily blog posts, including the Saturday haiku I've been doing for years. BUT the blog itself has moved to my website. If you go on over there you can subscribe and you'll never miss a post. (Miss a post! A scary thought!) Also, I'll be teaching a writing workshop in Italy this summer -- come join us!

Step up, all you cop-poets/poet-cops.

Passing this on from the amazing Sarah Cortez, a poet and cop in Houston, TX. RATTLE is a major poetry journal, and the summer 2012 issue will be devoted to Poets in Law Enforcement. Active or retired, any branch/specialty. See below, and put your work where your mouth is.

RATTLE #37 - Summer 2012 - Poets in Law Enforcement

Poetry: The tribute section will feature poetry written by poets working in or retired from a career in law enforcement. The poems don't have to be about your work -- we're interested in any subject or style of poem, as long as you are or have been a police officer, detective, investigator, jailer, FBI agent, probation officer, etc. To submit via email or hardcopy, follow the regular guidelines, but please note in the cover letter that you are submitting for the Law Enforcement tribute.

Essays: We'd like to publish essays on the relationship between law enforcement and poetry. Our preference is a personal narrative essay, which focuses on your own experience. Please query with any questions. Essays can be any length.

Artwork: We still need cover and divider art for this issue. Photography, paintings, or collages relating to the theme will all be considered. Submissions are accepted as lo-res email attachments (jpegs prefered), or by mail on a CD. Production will require hi-res images (300dpi @ 9.25" x 6.125").

I got your submission guidelines right here.

Deadline for submissions: February 1st, 2012
