Obsession up the Creek

The Chimaera's parent magazine, The Shit Creek Review, is calling for submissions for its September issue on the theme of Obsession. Here are the details (wash your hands first):

Obsession: not just a fashion accessory.

Obsession is how you make art, poetry, music, progress. Love.

"Love: the cognitive-affective state characterised by intrusive and obsessive fantasising concerning reciprocity of amorant feelings by the object of the amorance."

(Definition of Love from a psychology textbook)

So get your obsessions to work for The Shit Creek Review, whose theme for Issue #8 is.... well, yes: Obsession.

If you don't do Obsession, try Compulsion. Write poetry compulsively instead. Set free your inner Nutter.

However you get there, write the blooming obsessive-compulsive poems, then, if you can bear ever to part with them, send them to The Shit Creek Review.

Here we are:

Check the Submissions Guideline page for details.

But if Mars Sector 6 has commanded that you don't look at submissions guidelines on alternate Sundays, then send the poems direct to
