The Poetry Drone re-appropriates Unmanned Aerial Vehicle technology to drop poem-bombs, featuring specially commissioned poems by leading US and world poets, in an effort bring the US military’s covert drone operations into the spotlight to promote discussion, humanize its victims, and explore the political responsibility of poets, artists, and citizens.

The Poetry Drone is currently accepting submissions of poems to be considered both for use as drone “ammunition” and for inclusion in the The Poetry Drone Anthology, to be published in electronic and print editions in December 2013, pending successful funding of The Poetry Drone Fundraising campaign. If the fundraising campaign proves unsuccessful, the poems will be made available in a free-of-charge ebook edition.
To be considered, submit 1 - 3 poems to poetrydrone AT gmail DOT com by 1 October 2013.
Translations are accepted.
