Fact-Simile Editions is pleased to announce #15 in our Poetry Trading Card Series: Rachel Blau DuPlessis!

Calling All Submissions

Dear Friends and Readers-

We know you're out there. Somewhere. It's that time of year: Canadian bears are honking their way north again and grizzly geese are stumbling around the woods hibernation-drunk. That's right. The Vernal Equinox is almost upon us and that means Fact-Simile's Spring/Summer 2011 issue is accepting submission for a few more days.

Seven of them to be exact. Any submissions received before (or on) Monday, March 21 will be considered for this issue. Any submissions received after Monday will be considered for the Fall/Autumn 2011 issue.

So if you have some superb writing and/or word-work that you think might be a good fit, please send it along to:


If you've sent some poetry and/or prose along already and haven't heard back yet, please bear with us. It is still under careful consideration. If you're not familiar with Fact-Simile's most recent issues, you can read them all right here.

Also, keep an eye out for the opening submission call for our 2011 Equinox Chapbook contest. Details to be announced next Monday. In the meantime, we look forward to reading your work!

Best Regards,

Travis Macdonald & JenMarie Davis
