Inuit Canadians, Native Americans, and indigenous people living around
the world. (Closes May 17, 2020).

Regular Submissions
Please read these submission guidelines carefully. You must agree with
the terms on this page in order to make a regular submission to
First
Nations Poetry Magazine
. Your submission will be taken as proof of
your agreement and as such, no additional contract will be required for
publication to proceed. As such, you must include the following statement
in your submission: "I agree with the guidelines for regular poetry
submissions to First Nations Poetry Magazine."

Since this publication only publishes work by persons with an indigenous
background, as part of your submission, we request that you state which
specific culture you represent. If you like, you can also mention the name
and location of the traditional territory of your people.

Submissions are open to First Nations, Métis, and Inuit Canadians,
Native Americans, and indigenous people living around the world.
Submissions in a language other than English must include an English
translation.

Submissions are open all year round. Submissions are competitive as
only one poem will be published every four months. Submissions will
be divided into three periods; January 1st  to April 30th, May 1st to
August 31st, and September 1st to December 31st. From submissions
received during one period, one poem will be selected for publication
during the following period. When the poem is published, everyone who
submitted during the previous submission period will be informed on the
same day.

Simultaneous submissions are allowed. However, please withdraw
your submission immediately, if your poem is to be published elsewhere.
Please note that poems may not be simultaneously submitted to more
than one
Wax Poetry and Art submission stream.

Submit 1 original, unpublished, titled poem, along with a biography and
your mailing address (including street address, city, province / state,
country, and postal code). Include your social media information in your
biography, if applicable.

The maximum number of lines is 35, including line spaces and title,
which are counted as lines.

You can make a regular submission to
First Nations Poetry Magazine
once per submission period.

Accepted poems will be published online in
First Nations Poetry
Magazine. Eventually, 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 first publication
of the poem, as well as the right to republish the poem in
First Nations
Poetry Magazine & Wax Poetry and Art
anthologies, online and in print,
without additional permission required.

When published, an Official Print Version of the poem will be made
available for sale. The Official Print Version will be limited-edition,
numbered, and printed on cardstock in a format similar to a greeting
card. 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 and tip-jar
payments. 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. Royalties will be paid out annually
in January to anyone who is owed $10 CAD or more. There is no initial
payment.

Every poem published in this and all
Wax Poetry and Art publications
qualifies for the
Wax Poetry and Art Readers Choice prize of $50 CAD.
When your work is published, share the link with your social network.

year of publication, of all poems published on the

Network
, will be awarded a prize of $50 CAD. Poems published after
December 1st will be included in the next year's competition. Please note,
the eight finalists for the
Wax Poetry and Art Poetry World Cup are not
eligible for this prize, as they will participate in their own Readers Choice
competition.

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 considering the evolving and experimental nature of the Internet.

error has been made, the editor's decision is final.
