Logo of Authorspress 

 Magnum Opus

An International Poetry Anthology in English

 (Submit Your Only One Poem i.e. Master Piece)

(It’s simply a waste of time and labour if poem is submitted without reading the complete submission guidelines!)

Submission Deadline: 31 Dec 2018 (Midnight) 

Publication Expected: 2019 

Publisher: Authorspress, New Delhi, India 

Editor: Dr. Vivekanand Jha

 

Theme

A poem can be of any theme but it should be your magnum opus.

Submission Requirements

It is requested to submit your magnum opus poem.

To submit work, please:

  • Send only one poem, of no more than 50 lines at magnumopuspoem@gmail.com
  • Poem should originally be written in English. No translation, please.
  • Include a bio in maximum 100 words.
  • Submission of more than one poem shall be rejected without intimation.
  • Save MS word file with your name, paste your bio, email id and poem into it. Send it as an email attachment.

Selection

Mere submission of one’s magnum opus won’t qualify for the poem to be included in the anthology. Editor reserves the right to select the poem suiting the aim of the anthology and his decisions will be final. Final selection will be made after the deadline for submission is over. Decisions for selection or rejection will be intimated to the individual in due course of time. It’s no use making a query in between.

Dimension

We will be accepting submissions from poets all over the world.

Copyright and Acknowledgement

Copyright of the selected poem shall remain with the author. It is natural that being one’s best poem it may have published previously at more than one place. We would mention the acknowledgment of the first publisher only. If a poem is submitted to us it would be deemed that either the poet holds necessary copyright or he has taken due permission from its first publisher.

Availability

The anthology will be listed on various online stores and like other books of Authorspress this collection too will be made available worldwide through authorized distributors and sub-distributors. The anthology will be published in both print and electronic format.

Compensation

The contributors physically living in India irrespective of their country of origin will get a free print copy whereas those living overseas will get a free eBook which will be available with us in various forms and formats.

Circulation

We shall leave no stone unturned to reach the best contemporary poets all over the world. But if every poet, in the possession of this call for submissions, forwards to his fellow or friend poets, things will be pretty easier for us and it will be very helpful for the future health of poetry as well. Hence it is our humble request to forward this call to the emails at your disposal.

Looking forward to your submissions!

Best wishes!
