We are preparing the third and fourth installments of High Chair 12 for release on May 23, 2010, exactly six months after the Maguindanao Massacre.

The first two installments are here and here.

Please send us poems (whether old or new, unpublished or previously published) that offer ways of thinking about terror, horror, justice, impunity, and other pertinent ideas/terms.

We are also interested in reviews of local protest/political poetry books and anthologies or essays on the role and state of Philippine poetry and art in the context of the Maguindanao Massacre.

The deadline for submissions is May 15, 2010. We welcome submissions in Filipino and English. Email your submissions or queries to highchair@gmail.com (subject heading: High Chair Issue 12). Please circulate this call for submissions to other interested parties. Thank you.
