fwd - call for submissions

Comrade poet!

Since Parliament has been prorogued, you're probably just sitting on your hands, bereft. But things are looking up!

You are invited to submit a poem for consideration for a new anthology to be published by Mansfield Press just in time for the reconvening of Parliament on March 3.

The collection is titled Rogue Stimulus: The Stephen Harper Holiday Anthology for a Prorogued Parliament. We're looking for poems of up to 75 lines: your tender musings on Stephen Harper.

We have to move fast. The deadline is midnight on Tuesday, January 19. Payment for your contribution is one copy of the anthology. It's gonna look good and it's gonna be full of good poems.

The editors of Rogue Stimulus are Ottawa poet Stephen Brockwell and Toronto/Cobourg poet Stuart Ross. Denis De Klerck, publisher of Toronto literary house Mansfield Press, is oiling up the machinery for quick action, to ensure the anthology's timely release.

Please email your poem (preferably as a Word attachment) to:

We look forward to hearing from you.

Stephen and Stuart
