Leaf Press Newborn Anthology

From Leaf Press:

Newborn Anthology:

Leaf Press is gathering poems for an anthology about the newly born, the almost born, the journey in-between. We are interested in thresholds and liminal states; in moments that transcend global cultures. We welcome poems from all the continents, asking only that they be accompanied by a translation to English. We may be able to help, in some instances, with translations.
