The Weekly Poetry Contest #1 Submission Guidelines

Sponsored by: Wax Poetry and Art

Contest Status: Open.

This contest closes at midnight on Sunday. The next contest starts
immediately following the end of the current contest, Monday morning.

These guidelines have been specially crafted to make running a weekly
contest easier, therefore it is essential that you follow these guidelines
when making your submission.

The contest runs weekly from Monday morning at 12:01 AM, to Sunday night,
12:00 midnight, every week, unless otherwise posted on this page.

The winner will be chosen and published within 1 week following the close
of each contest. Participants will not be notified directly of the winner. The
winner will be published online in
Weekly Poems and announced on the
Facebook pages of
Weekly Poems and Wax Poetry and Art.

Since the winner will be published within a week of the contest closing, there
will never be more than two weeks from the time you submit until the time the
winner is published. Therefore, please do not send queries until two weeks
have passed from the time of your submission.

If there are fewer than two publishable entries, no winner will be published.
A not explaining this will be published. If only one publishable entry is
submitted, that person will be informed that their poem is being carried into
the next week's contest.

You will receive confirmation that your submission has been received.

Simultaneous submissions are allowed.

Submit 1 original, unpublished, titled poem, along with a biography and your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

The entire submission (poem, biography, mailing address) must be copied
and pasted into the body of a single email and sent to the email address
shown below. Do not include any part of your submission in an attachment.

Send your submission
via email by midnight on Sunday. Use, "The Weekly
Poetry Contest" as the subject header of your email. Send your email to:

info@waxpoetryart.com.

Submissions will not be reviewed upon receipt. Incomplete or improperly
formatted submissions will be disqualified at the start of review.


Winning The Weekly Poetry Contest
The winner receives publication in Weekly Poems. There is no financial
compensation. However, the poet with the most weekly wins at the end of
2017, having won at least 5 weeks, shall receive entry for one winning
poem of their choice into the Reader's Choice component of the
Wax
Poetry and Art World's Best Poem Contest. That contest does have a cash
prize.

The winner grants publisher Kirk Ramdath the right to the first publication
of the poem, as well as the right to republish the poem in
Weekly Poems &
Wax Poetry and Art anthologies, online or in print, without additional
permission required. The publisher warrants that if the winning poem is
ever collected into an online or print anthology, authors shall receive an
appropriate share of 50% of all online sales and 15% of all print sales.
Royalties will be shared equally among all contributors, and paid out
annually in January, to anyone who $25 CAD or more is owed.

The winner also grants the publisher the right to publish parts or all of the
work on third party platforms such as Facebook, specifically for the
purpose of sharing the work with more people, and considering the evolving
and experimental nature of the Internet.
