The editorial board invites artists and poets to participate in the creation of the new issue’s cover.

In a time when the languages ​​of art and poetry multiply, expand and manifest themselves in new forms, with new technologies, the relationship between poetry and image today constitutes an increasingly complex and decisive theme.

The proposal that will be chosen as the cover of the third issue will be the one that most of all will visually describe this type of relationship.


How to partecipate

The proposal can be submitted by the 20st of December 2021, 1.00 pm,  by sending an e-mail with the subject “Call for entries 2021” to, attaching the proposal’s file and a declaration of intellectual property complete with date and signature.

It is not necessary to insert the logo or other information related to the journal: these will be insert later by the editorial board.

«Polisemie» is a journal of literary criticism published by the University of Warwick Press. It stems from the desire to understand the present in its forms, even in those that may appear irreducibly chaotic and happily disordered, with the long-term aim of tracing a map of the contemporary phenomenon of poetic writing. 

The first issue, published in April 2020, brought together interviews with poets and scientific articles on contemporary poetry, and constitutes itself as a content of study with unprecedented perspectives and aspirations.
