The working title for Pink Motel was Book of Maps. Almost a hundred places were counted in a casual survey of this wonderful book of poems. The persona of Lucy takes the reader across the U.S., in all its glory and grief.
Hit the road with Lucy and submit your map of her travels. Entries will be judged on esthetics and whimsy and of course, their “Lucy-ness.” Please submit a jpg or pdf file of your entry on Anhinga Press’ Submittable page. The entry fee is $5.
Prizes include a signed copy of all the books by Patti White has published with Anhinga Press (Tackle Box, Yellow Jackets, Chain Link Fence and a fresh new copy of Pink Motel), and 50 percent of the entry fees. Since we’ve never done this before and Anhinga Press is definitely a non-profit press, we want to break even. It will be fun; it could be profitable; or, it could be lunch! Other entries will be posted on the Anhinga website, Facebook and Instagram.
Lynne Knight, co-director of Anhinga Press and editor/designer of Patti’s Anhinga books, will judge.
