SUBMISSIONS

Follow @CollusionBooks for Collusion & Tafseer submission calls & news.

Collusion welcomes sequences of collaborative poetry—as well as cross-art collaborations with poetic elements—for digital publication in the occasional anthology series 2×4.

Each submission (6 to 10 poems and/or artworks) must be a unified collaborative project. While individual poems/artworks may be created solo, the project as a whole must be conceived and composed by two actively & equally collaborating artists. This shared 

Publication is digital, with 2×4 editions offered on a pay-what-you-want basis. All reader donations toward an edition of 2×4 are split among that edition’s contributors, and all contributors & donors receive an exclusive ebook adaptation of the digital chapbook.

Submit via the form below by AUGUST 31 to be considered for publication in 2×4^3 (fall, 2021). Submissions received by this date will also be considered for publication in 2×4^4 (spring, 2022). 

Tafseer welcomes chapbook manuscripts of poetry translated into English by BIPOC & racialized translators (with a particular focus on source languages other than Québécois French) for print publication. Collaborative translation projects are welcome.

Publication is up to 100 perfect-bound copies. Compensation includes 1/5 of each print run, unlimited access to more copies at cost (shipping included), and all net revenue for each print run.
