45 Poems: Reflection & Response

Eleventh Transmission believes poetry and art tell the true story of people
and communities.

Submissions are now being accepted into the following special project.

Other current submission opportunities can be viewed on the
Wax Poetry
and Art Contests & Submissions page.

Special Project: 45 Poems

Wax Poetry and Art & Eleventh Transmission present
45 Poems:
For the Revolution

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

This special project seeks poems that engage with, reflect upon, and
critique the current social and political climate. These are challenging times,
and in later years, these are the poems that will show, poets were there,
and we did not hold our tongue.

The number 45 references the current U.S. administration, whose tenure
seems emblematic of many challenges facing humanity and the
environment. 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

Accepted poems will initially be published online in
Eleventh Transmission.
