THE COSMOS ISSUE: (The Poeming Pigeon #9)
From the learning how to locate the Little Dipper to standing awe-struck under the Milky Way, humans have been asking: What’s out there in the great beyond? Could we survive on Mars? What is dark matter? Are wormholes the secret to time travel? Our curiosity is as vast as the universe itself. Send us your best stargazing poems exploring the great beyond, string theory and black holes. Make a case for Pluto–planet or not planet? This theme is yours to take to the outer limits.

I-Park is now accepting applications for its fully-funded four-week autumn residencies. This multi-disciplinary program is open to writers looking to enrich their practice in a collegial, retreat-like setting – in the company of artists working in visual arts, music composition/sound art, moving image and architecture/landscape design.
I-Park residencies are open to writers and playwrights in all genres, including fiction, nonfiction, poetry, screenwriting, literary criticism and mixed media.
Located within a 450-acre nature preserve in rural East Haddam, Connecticut (U.S.), I-Park provides residents with private living quarters in a renovated 1840s farmhouse, a private studio, meals program, well equipped workshop and a modest library – as well as creative access to I-Park’s expansive grounds. Residencies are self-directed, undisturbed and non-judgmental. You decide what you’re working on and when.
Details and application forms are available at i-park.org. Applications are due May 20, 2019 and carry a $35 fee to help defray the cost of the selection panel. This year, I-Park will also be offering $500 travel grants to six international artists. For further information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 860-873-2468.
