Thank you so much for submitting poems to the Spring, 2005 Issue of Quills Canadian Poetry Magazine.
Regrettably the editors either did not choose your poems or they were edited out because of space issues. Please do not be discouraged as the number of poems submitted this quarter was over 1500 from many points of Canada and there are different editors for next issue. Feel free to resubmit the same poems again or send new ones for the Summer Issue. The deadline for submissions is May 1st.
Well, I resubmitted the same pomes.
Frankly I find the Quills name and image far more cloying than the contents of this independent and unpretentious little journal, which takes email submissions excusively. (Maybe it should be called Electronic Quill, E-Quill for short.) If you click on that link, you'll see also that not only does it accept poems from "young and old, published or unpublished", it accepts submissions from poets who have died in the current year (or rather, from publishers of said poets), with DEAD POETS SUBMISSION in the subject line.
So if you've just died and happen to be reading this, take note.
For those who have not yet croaked, there's a yearly lust issue with pretty steamy cover pic under that trite insignia. Talk about dual personality. Or multiple. Hmmm.
Again, you have to be Canadian to submit to this one. None of you nasty Americans allowed.
We'll see if I win the Quills lottery this time. If not, well, I can keep on submitting ... even after I pass on into the next realm. Although I can only do so for a year after giving up my last breath.
Talk about a deadline!
