Poets of the Bay Area Contest #1 - Open to everyone residing in the San
Francisco Bay Area. (Closes June 7, 2020).

Regular Submissions - Opens January 1, 2020.
Please read these submission guidelines carefully. You must agree with
the terms on this page in order to make a regular submission to
San
Francisco 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 San Francisco Poetry Magazine."

Submissions are open to residents of California. 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. Please remove your poem from
consideration if you agree to publish it elsewhere.

Submit 1 previously unpublished poem, maximum 35 lines, along with
a biography and your mailing address (including street address, city,
province / state, country, and postal code). Include social media
information in your biography, if applicable. Please limit the biography
to 100 words.

You can make a regular submission to
San Francisco Poetry Magazine
once per submission period.

Accepted poems will be published online in
San Francisco 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
San Francisco
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
and ask them to share the work as well. The poem receiving the most
unique page views within the 30 days following publication, of all poems
published during the same calender year, will be awarded a prize of $50
CAD. Poems published after December 1 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.
