Fire on Her Tongue
This is very cool.
Fire on Her Tongue: An eBook Anthology of Contemporary Women's Poetry is the first electronic collection of poems by women writing today.
Not sure how poets Kelli Russell Agodon and Annette Spaulding-Convy found the time to do this--they are co-editors of Crab Creek Review and co-founders of Two Sylvias Press, the press behind the e-anthology. But they did, pulling together this project with more than 70 participating poets (including yours truly) canvasing the span of the contemporary women's experience.
Also of note, as an e-book, it has a zero carbon-footprint. The call for submissions, assemblage of the anthology, mailing of contracts, and distribution of the final project is done without the use of paper and other resources. The editors saw an opportunity to use technology that allowed them to produce and distribute it with minimal stress on the environment.
Visit the website for the full list of participating poets. Release date is set for late fall 2011.
