The Chrysalis Project Call for Writers


The Chrysalis Project seeks poems for an anthology about caregiving for any form of dementia. Simultaneous submissions and previously published works accepted as long as the writer holds rights. Submit up to 3 poems/5 pages of poetry.

The Chrysalis Project seeks poems for an anthology about caregiving for any form of dementia.  Caregiving can be paid or unpaid, full time or part time, hands-on or long distance, physical or emotional support. As the population continues to age, more and more of us will find ourselves caregiving or receiving care. Tell the world, what they don’t know–yet.  Caregiving is a transformative experience and we look for work that reflects the full range, whether loving, trying-to-be-loving-but-not-succeeding, joyful, grief-stricken, guilt-ridden, expert, incompetent, tragic, comic, exhausting, irritating, frustrating, enlightening, depleting, elevating, rewarding. As this anthology is about caregiving, it should be present in the poem, either explicitly or implicitly. 

Deadline: September 30. For complete guidelines, visit
