Right Now are currently accepting poetry and spoken word for publication on their website edited by Melbourne Spoken Word editor, Benjamin Solah.
Right Now seeks poetic expressions of human rights and social justice. We are seeking poetry of 100 lines or less that fit with monthly themes, touching on the issues of human rights, whether they be in the form of non-fictional poetry, abstract examples or the obscure connections that connect words to the rights of human beings. We are also very happy to accept spoken word recordings as well.
