2015-2016 Poetry Competition
Theme: Global Social Justice
We are searching for several poets to join one cause--to bring awareness to social injustice around the globe. From Cambodian work factories to the forgotten orphans in Uganda, we are aiming to shed light and compassion through the poetic voice.
Our Style: We are captivated by powerful images and enjoying a consistent flow of rhythm. Please do not submit rhyming poetry.
Where to send your poems:
We only accept online submissions. Please send only unpublished poems to firstname.lastname@example.org. Make sure to paste the poem in the body of the email as well as send a word document. Please include your contact information and make sure that each poem is formatted on a new page. Also include a short biographical statement with any publications you have received. Lastly, there are many issues of human rights and social justice, please take the time to write a sentence or two about the issue you are bringing to light in the poem.
How many can I submit?
You can submit three poems maximum. If we are interested we will ask for more poems. Poems must NOT be published elsewhere and Reward Publishing will hold first rights.
This will be used as a non-profit awareness fundraiser. Poets will receive one copy of the book, and a chance to read at an opening event in the Spring (to be announced)
because the reward is helping others.
