Poems for Occasions

Sponsored by Angela Poetry Magazine and Wax Poetry and Art.

Submissions are open during January, March, May, July, September, and
November. If the occasion is a holiday, submissions are also accepted
within 15 days before and after the holiday.

Description
The general public often engages with poetry during occasions such as
holidays and important life events.
Poems for Occasions will create a free
online resource that will allow people to find poems about occasions
when they most want to read them. This project also intends to generate
royalties for poets and help increase overall poetry readership, worldwide.
Poems for Occasions is sponsored by Angela Poetry Magazine and Wax
Poetry and Art.

Submission Guidelines
Please read these submission guidelines carefully. You must agree with
the terms on this page in order to submit poetry to this project. Your

you must include the following statement in your submission:
"I agree with the submission guidelines for the special project, Poems for
Occasions."

Submissions are open during January, March, May, July, September,
and November. If the occasion is a holiday, submissions are also
accepted within 15 days before and after the holiday.

Submissions are open to everyone on Earth. Submissions in a language
other than English must include an English translation as well as the
name, biography, and mailing address of the translator. In such cases,
royalties are shared equally between the poet and translator.

Previously published work and simultaneous submissions are allowed.

Submit 1 poem, along with a biography and your mailing address
(including street address, city, province / state, country, and postal code).

You can make a new submission once your submission has been
published or rejected.

Accepted poems will be published online in
Poems for Occasions as
part of the
Poems for Occasions special project, in a category dedicated
to the occasion the poem commemorates.  Eventually, when an occasion
collects a sufficient number of poems, the poems may be collected into
a free online book to be published in the
Wax Poetry and Art Library, and
/ or a print book to be sold.

The poet grants publisher Kirk Ramdath the right to the publication
of the poem, as well as the right to republish the poem in

When published, an Official Print Version of the poem will be made
available for sale. The winner will receive a 20% royalty on all print
sales, as well as a 50% royalty on electronic sales, such as of .pdf
documents. If the poem is ever collected into an online or print anthology,
the same royalty rates apply, and royalties will be shared equally among
all contributors, based on contribution, and paid out annually in January
to anyone who is owed $10 CAD or more. There is no initial payment.

The poet also grants the publisher the right to publish parts or all of the
work on third party platforms such as Facebook and other social media,
specifically for the purpose of sharing the work with more people, and
