Special Project

Eleventh Transmission & Wax Poetry and Art present
45 Poems:
Reflection & Response

Poets of conscience and courage, writing in English, living everywhere
on Earth, are invited to submit to
45 Poems: Reflection & Response,
presented by
Eleventh Transmission & Wax Poetry and Art.

This special project seeks poems that engage with, reflect upon, critique,
and otherwise respond to current social and political climate that has seen
increasing challenges for democracy in liberal societies and weakening of
decades-long political unions. Meanwhile, our societies continue to face
other internal and external challenges, both old and new.

The number 45 is in reference to the new administration in the United States
in 2017, whose era is emblematic of many issues this special project seeks
reflection on. However, what is happening in your town and on your street,
and to you, is just as important. True history happens in the real lives of
everyday people. This special project encourages wide exploration and
hopes for the widest range of voices and topics in relation to the theme.

Publication Information & Submission Guidelines
Tentatively, submissions shall remain open until January 2021.

Accepted poems will initially be published online in
Eleventh Transmission.
Eventually, 45 poems of those poems will be collected into an edition and
published online in the
Wax Poetry and Art Bookstore & Free Library, with
the title,
45 Poems: Reflection & Response. Not all poems initially published
will be chosen for the collection. If there are many initial submissions,
additional volumes of the collection may be added. If possible at any time, a
print version of the collection will be published.

There is no timetable for when the poems initially published in
will be published as a collection in the Wax Poetry and Art
Bookstore & Free Library.

Eleventh Transmission is a free publication and as a result there is no
compensation for being published in this special project. There is no initial
compensation for being included in the resulting collection, or for being
published in a possible print version. Writers included in the resulting
45 Poems: Reflection & Response, shall receive a 50% royalty
for online sales of their publication in the Wax Poetry and Art Bookstore &
Free Library. Writers shall receive a 15% royalty on the sales of any print
version that results. Royalties will be shared equally based on number of
poems included. As a result, royalties may need to be shared among as
many as 45 poets. Royalties will be paid annually in January, to anyone
whom a minimum of $25 CAD is owed.

Submission Guidelines
Submit up to 3 original poems relating to the theme described. Poems must
be titled. There is no restriction on the number of lines. All three of your
poems may be accepted.

Poems may be previously published. Simultaneous submissions are allowed.

Since this special project accepts previously published poems, you do not
need to notify me if your poems are accepted elsewhere. Please remember
to withdraw your poems if you enter them into a market that does not allow
simultaneous submissions.

Review of poems may take as long as 6 months. However, it may also be
much faster than that.
