Our minds are like labyrinths, we remember, we forget. Sometimes, the past is the hardest thing we have to confront. Forgetting and letting go of what haunts us is often an impossible task, but something we must go through in order to find any kind of resolution. In other forms, forgetting can be a curse, like struggling with Alzheimer’s or misplacing one’s possessions. How does "Forgetting" figure in your lives and in your poems?
The editors at Vallum are committed to enriching and continuing the tradition of poetry in the present day. We welcome submissions that deepen our understanding of what poetry is and can be. We encourage Indigenous writers, writers of colour, gender non-conforming writers, differently abled writers, LGBTQ writers, writers with mental or physical illnesses, and writers who are otherwise affected by structural inequality to submit their work for consideration.
