Return of the Poet's Domain

Wider Perspectives Publishing is ecstatic to announce that... The POET'S DOMAIN has returned to the roost here in Virginia with some new features that I think will welcome the many previous contributors back into the fold and excite some newcomers to jump aboard. The theme for volume 33 shall be Seasons and Crossroads. As before we don't want to dictate how the poet interprets the idea, but I will offer just these thoughts to get the juices flowing: It seems that what Seasons and Crossroads have in common is change. Both herald changes to come. One is predictable in timing and you might have some idea about what it entails, but really it's outcomes are out of one's control. The other comes up in one's wanderings and presents a choice, which you can control, but the outcome may still be unpredictable. If you wish to throw in a brief statement as to why you think your entry addresses the theme go for it. The submissions reading fee is $5 for the 1st poem and less-a-dollar for each subsequent poem to a maximum of FIVE submissions. So…
Items sub.= Total
1   =          $5,
2   =          $9,
3   =         $12,
4   =         $14,
5   =         $15

Poet's Domain accepts only original poetry submissions from residents of Virginia or any state bordering it, individuals having significant dealings within or formerly living in Virginia, or anyone who previously contributed to the journal. The entry fee is $5 for the 1st poem and less-a-dollar for each subsequent poem to a maximum of FIVE submissions. (So $5, then $4, $3, $2, and $1, respectively) There is a maximum length per entered item of 4 pages typed(12pt., 8x11), below that any style, form or voice of poem shall be considered. English is the assumed language of the journal, but poems with mixed language will be considered. Submissions open on July 1, 2019 and close October 6, 2019 at midnight. Each accepted contributor shall receive one complimentary copy of vol. 33 with a postcard upon which they may vote for their favorite piece from that issue. The winning poet will be acknowledged with a certificate and $50 prize. Additional copies will be available to contributors at a discount. Please notify at time of submission if a poem has been submitted elsewhere (and where) or previously published. Simultaneous submission or republication can be done with coordination with other source. Submissions should be .doc, .docx, .dot, .rtf, .odt, .xml or .pdf attached to an email titled Poets Domain 33 to HRACandWPP@outlook.com. The body of the email may contain text of the poetry, too, but it’s unnecessary. Payment may be made in the form of check/M.O. paypal.com transfer to friend/family or Credit Card through paypal.
