The next issue will feature what Licitra calls "menu poems," which are usually odes to a favorite restaurant. I enjoy those each year and look forward to this batch. Submissions are closed for menu poems for 2013, but if you'd like to submit other poetry, fiction, nonfiction, book reviews, music or artwork about food, send your work to the website here.
In other Licitra news, she is leading a group of hungry travelers to Venice later this year from Sept. 18-25. She'll take six to eight people on a tour of the city's restaurants and markets, and Paulette will teach two cooking classes during the week. There will also be plenty of time for sightseeing, and Licitra will be happy to serve as tour organizer and Italian translator if you need assistance. For more details, email her at email@example.com and she'll send you the pricing and full schedule.
