I wouldn't have a pitch for poetry but I think it'd be neat to see. Boy it's a hard sell though. I can't see it selling nearly as well as any other theme.
What themes would others like to see? I think we have to tackle War stories at some point right? An issue of 'True stories' would be cool, whether they're snippets of our real lives or interesting stories most people don't know about musicians, politicians, celebrities etc. God damn would I love a Samurai themed issue. Director themed issues, one where we pay homage to Hitchcock, Tarantino, Spielberg etc.

I wanted to do a Romance story, but it was way too late by the time submissions opened back up.
Chapter 5 of Skits is now up at the site. Check it out...
The 2 Horror volumes and the Romance volumes (as well as Despair) are our best selling issues.
Both Horror books are on their 2nd printings and Romance is about to get there.
Trying to determine which issues will sell the best is a crap shoot. We have a lot of females and people who don't like super hero books reading the anthology so things like Horror, Despair and Romance will sell while Heroes faulters. Then we get to a more mainstream place like NYCC and Heroes does very well. There's also the allure of the pro guest star to help drive interest and sales and the covers which immediately capture people's attention.
My prediction early on is that the Sci Fi issue with a theme that got a lot of attention couple with a Star Wars writer participating will lead to our best sales yet but that could and may be completely wrong. We'll find out in January.
But that speculation and figuring out our audience is part of the fun
If I may go back to my previous question, I think I remember what the submission was for. I believe it was for the Adventure issue.
