Donut Poem

Hey, know of anyone interested in this?
I’m editing an anthology of donut poems.
Have you published any donut poems, know of any published donut poems, or want to write a donut poem?
The submission window will open APRIL 1, but I am trying to give poets enough notice in hopes they will write a poem or two before the deadline ends. Here are the guidelines.

Call for Submissions for an Anthology of Donut Poems

To be published by Terrapin Books, fall 2017
Edited by Jason Lee Brown and Shanie Latham
Anthology will be 6 x 9 paperback, perfect bound, color cover, and printed spine.
Submission Period: April 1, 2017, through May 31, 2017
We will consider up to five published or unpublished poems about any kind of donut, e.g., jelly donut, sugar, powdered, glazed, Boston cream, donut holes, cruller, long john, fritter, pączki, oliebollen, ponchik, fánk.
Send us your poems about making donuts, eating donuts, donuts and family rituals or traditions, your love or fear of donuts, your first donut, a memory associated with donuts, cops and donuts, a fight over donuts, a dream or a nightmare about donuts.
We will consider previously published poems provided the author is able to grant permission for Terrapin Books to republish the poems.
If a poem has been previously published, please indicate the book title with publisher and year, or the journal name and year.
Submit poems in one file via Submittable.
In the cover letter area, include a bio of 50-75 words, written in the third-person.
Each contributor will receive one contributor’s copy.
No fee.
