Fly Heroes Poems in Praise of our Superheroes

A project of FlowerSong Press (see other related projects).

Do not submit here! This project is permanently closed to submissions (January 2022). We provide the following information as an archive.


This anthology is seeking poetry submissions by historically underrepresented poets about their superheroes. The ideal poem would be an ode, a piece in praise of that hero who reflected you when you most needed a hero, a hero with whom you identified because of that very reflection, a hero who shared their strength with you, that hero who taught you to do battle through the struggle. Poems can be about heroes of all kinds: comic book or film and TV superheroes, or heroes of the everyday variety.

Before Submitting

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible.

  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
