From 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.
We’re looking for the best poetry inspired by the cosmos for our 9th issue of The Poeming Pigeon. We’re open for submissions Apr 15-Jun 15. Click HERE for all the details.
