Call for Collaborators: 78 Anthology


Call for submissions from the editor of 78 Anthology:

This anthology seeks to bring together the magic of the Tarot, photography, and poetry. We are looking for 78 poets to create original poems in response to a Tarot card they are assigned. If you decide to participate in the project, you will be assigned a Tarot card, and you will craft a poem in response to this card: however you’d like to interpret it, or your relationship with it. The only restriction on your poem is that it must be no longer than 20 lines. After all poems are submitted, our collaborating photographer, Katrin Albert  ( will be creating original photographs in response to each of the cards and your poems. The anthology will be published in print with select works available online with their companion images. There will also be a poem-only edition available.

Each poet will receive a small honorarium upon publication. In addition, we are planning to organize several readings throughout the US as well as at AWP 2020.

We already have 36 submissions, and are looking to finalize the selections for this project by the summer: please email me, Mariya Deykute, at by April 15th if you would like to participate and receive a Tarot card. You will receive a card on April 15th. Your final submission will be due by May 15th.


M. Deykute, editor
