Kakalak 2022 Poetry and Art Contest Submissions Window:
March 1 through May 30, 2022
Kakalak evokes the spirit of the Carolinas
from the Outer Banks and Low Country
to the Piedmont and Appalachia.
From the Urban Dictionary, Kakalak literally means “an endearment of the Carolinas.” Originally a regional anthology highlighting North and South Carolina poets and artists, Kakalak now accepts poetry and art from anyone, anywhere—maintaining the spirit of the Carolinas as a broad brush while including topics not specific to North or South Carolina.
Kakalak is a rich medley of colors and textures—in the language of the poets and the visual depth of the artists. While the journal does not claim a set theme, there’s something truly beautiful in how each issue ties together and creates a balance of dark, serious subjects tempered by poignant, light-hearted humor.
Kakalak 2022 is published by Moonshine Review Press.
