Submission Guidelines for CE 1-7: Poetry of Contact 

Volume 2 


Call for Submissions – Editor: Tish Eastman  

There are many collections of sci-fi inspired poetry, but thus far the editors have not  found, anywhere, an anthology of contactee/Experiencer poetry. This is likely the first. The  anthology will have seven sections of poetry, representing Contact of the First – Seventh Kinds.  Poems will ideally be based upon first-person experiences, but there aren’t any affidavits of  authenticity for this type of phenomenon. Therefore, poems will be selected on the basis of how  well they capture our stories, which are resonant, honest, courageous.  

The editor, Tish Eastman, is a poet and an Experiencer.  


  1. Submit from 1-7 poems, maximum 200 line length per poem.  
  2. Upload your poems, attached to email, in a single Microsoft Word document.  
  3. Include a brief, one paragraph bio, including any background you wish to share about your  Experiences, or any paranormal experiences in general. (This is for the editors eyes only. If  you are selected for publication you will have an opportunity to resubmit a bio, or to be  published without one, or be published under a pseudonym if you prefer.)  
  4. Poems will be selected for each section of the anthology. It’s not necessary to specify which  type of encounter you wish your poem to be considered for, but if you have a preference  include CE 1, CE 2, etc. after the poem title.  
  5. The definitions of the CE types: CE 1 (seeing a UFO), CE 2 (evidence of a UFO), CE 3  (seeing an extraterrestrial or inter-dimensional being), CE 4 (abduction or being taken), CE 5  (communication with the being), CE 6 (death to human or animal), CE 7 (the hybridization  program). If you wish more detail email and ask for the  Writer’s Prompts document to be sent to you.  
  6. Send submission via email to Put “Submission for CE” in  the subject header.
