The Polaris Trilogy 3 Guidelines

This is a Brick Street Poetry Inc. call, only for poets living in South America and Australia/Oceania, or having worked in Antarctica to submit poems for Volume Three of our Polaris Trilogy Anthology. The three volumes of The Polaris Trilogy will be launched aboard the Space X flight scheduled to depart for the South Pole of Earth’s Moon in 2023 where it will reside for millions of years as part of the Lunar Codex.

The window for submitting is short so act quickly. This is a unique opportunity.  There is no cost to submit. Please read the guidelines thoroughly. If they are not followed exactly your entry will be discarded.

Guidelines

  1. Send only new, unpublished work. By submitting you are declaring that your submission was written by you.
  2. Preferred length is no more than one page. We will only rarely accept a poem that is more than one page long.
  3. All work should be in 12 point Times New Roman and attached as a Microsoft doc. or docx.
  4. You can send only one poem inspired by one or more of the three categories: The categories are Ice, Wind, and Fire Please include the category name(s) in your submission and in the subject line of your email.  For example, if you are sending one inspired by Ice and Fire then Ice and Fire go in the subject line.
  5. How you approach these subjects is up to you. Your poem may be literal, metaphorical, magical, comical, etc. as long as it incorporates the subject in some way. Poems might be formal—traditional or innovative—. We encourage forms representative of native cultures.
  6. We are happy to receive poems that are not written in English, but you must include an English translation with your submission.
  7. You must include your home address in your submission. Please put it both in your email and at the beginning of your poem. An aim of this anthology is to present a global picture of poetry today. We will not be reading blind submissions. Quality is paramount, but location is also a determining factor in acceptance.
  8. Send your submission to polaristrilogy3@gmail.com
  9. Submit by 11:59 pm EST, May 30, 2022
  10. Do not expect to hear from us unless your poem is accepted and don’t expect to hear soon. This is a worldwide project, and it could take all of 2022 before we will have final decisions made.
