Submissions open for Dead of Winter Anthology

Milk & Cake Press is now accepting submissions for our biennial anthology, Dead of Winter, to be published in February 2024. We are looking for poems that deal with the mythological, the mysteries of nature, the dark, or the uncanny of a long, cold winter. We aim to capture the feeling of the transition from the depths of winter toward spring.

To submit, please submit 1-3 poems in a Word document to Duosuma. There is no submission fee. Payment will be a copy of the anthology. 

Submissions close October 31, 2023.

Now Available: Panacea by Alison Strub

A meditation on illness, healing, and caregiving and its limits, Panacea is elegiac.Using the framework of archaic remedies, Panacea addresses the psychological burden of caregiving, particularly when it is futile. Drawing on themes of transformation and turning one thing to another (lead to gold / healthy to unhealthy), Panacea reminds us that even in the days of modern medical advances, illness is as old as life itself.
