a call for submissions from derek beaulieu (Calgary)

hey folks;
i'm making a limited edition magazine/ephemeral object entitled "speechless" dedicated to the dissemination and discussion of concrete / visual poetry.

"speechless" will feature new visual poetry and possible historical / rare examples ... the 1st issue (out now) includes 3 new concrete poets here in calgary: eva gonzalez, rachelle pinnow and helen hajnoczky (and an essay on mary ellen solt).

i seek previously unpublished (or if published, then infrequently seen...) colour or B&W concrete / visual poems. email or snail mail submissions are fine. issues are not themed, but an issue on typewriter-based work is planned.

each issue of "speechless" will be between 20 and 28 pages per issue and will feature 3-4 poets -- the submission deadline is open (issues will be published when enough accepted submissions accumulate), and i plan to include both poetry and criticism.

if you have any work for consideration, please send to:
