Clickthat you have read and agree with the statement below (mandatory for inclusion in anthology)

Author must have rights to the poem/prose, and the author will continue to retain all rights to the poem/prose after publication in the anthology.
Poem may not exceed 38 lines  (this includes title, blank lines, and author's name). If the line in the poem exceeds 55 letters and spaces, the wrapped portion of the line will be indented and count as two of your 38 lines. Prose may not exceed 325 (bottom line is that it has to all fit on a 5.5"x8.5" page) words. If you have a lot of dialogue in your submission and is 275 words, your submission may not fit on a 5.5" x 8.5" page. Conversely if your submission is mostly narration, a submission of 325+ words may well fit on a 5.5" x 8.5" page. If your prose submission is too long, I will let you know how many words you must cut or I will cut it myself and you can approve the change:-)

Begin your poem/prose with the title, then your name, blank space, first line as below.
