The digital codex of contemporary pan-American writing, Hinchas de Poesia is currently seeking submissions of poetry, fiction, and criticism for their thirteenth issue, which will be published simultaneously with the onslaught of the 2014 World Cup in June.
We are not seeking literature about fútbol per se; your piece's virtuosity and verve might be enough for readers to connect it to the world of fútbol. But, do not let us stop you from constructing original poems in traditional forms that define, delineate, or further deconstruct fútbol.
We are interested in the intersection between lyrical prowess and the religious cult of Fútbol. The beautiful game is not only a religious phenomenon, it has severe, geopolitical repercussions. We are interested in fútbol, as it is played in the mind, and on the field. If you have anything like this, please send it to us so we can share it with our audience.

Hinchas de Poesía (www.hinchasdepoesia.com) is pleased to introduce Mo Fowler, Lauren Hawley & Ghada Seiffadine. Other poets include Laura Jensen, Pamela Stewart, Nancy Aidé González, & Amalia Ortiz. They also feature fiction by Donna Vitucci & review new books by Chip Livingston, Roberto Bolaño & James Cervantes.
This is their 12th issue. Their next issue will cover the World Cup and celebrate five years of publishing writing (poetry, fiction, and criticism) from the Americas. They don't sell advertising so you might say their model is a little off, but it's obvious to all that Hinchas is a labor of love and driven by passion. Please linger on their new issue and tell me what you think.
