Frontenac House Announces Dektet 2010

As a rule, I usually limit blue skies poetry posts to new work, calls for submissions, and occasional announcements about Writing the Land. However, I felt that this notice warranted an exception due in large part to Frontenac’s unflagging support of Canadian poets, many of whom have been featured here: Dymphny Dronyk, Weyman Chan, Alexis Kienlan, Diane Buchanan, and Bob Stallworthy, to name a few.

A brief excerpt of the official announcement from Frontenac House:

In celebration of the 10th anniversary of their Quartet poetry series, Frontenac House will simultaneously publish 10 poetry books – Dektet 2010.

Titles will be chosen by a jury of leading Canadian writers. This will be a blind selection process – jury members will not know the identity of persons submitting manuscripts.

An advance on royalties of $1000 will be paid to each writer whose work is accepted for publication in Dektet 2010.

All books will be published simultaneously in 2010.

Deadline for submission is October 31, 2008.
