I putting together a poetry anthology (which has been delayed) incorporating several things close to my heart: Poetry, Judaism, the DC area, and Tzedakah (charity). The basic idea is to round up a variety of Greater Washington Area Poets. The poetry *must* be related to Judaism. Fifty percent of the profits will be donated to a Greater Washington Area Jewish charitable organization. Ten percent of the profit will go to CoreyJF Publishing, LLC for covering ongoing costs of marketing and other general publishing functions. The remaining forty percent of the profits will be split among the writers. The split will be based on the number of accepted contributions. A poet with more than one accepted contribution will receive an equal share for each published poem. There will be a print, eBook, and likely an audio version of this anthology. Writers retain most reprint and resale rights of their individual work. The only exception is for the continued inclusion in this anthology (e.g. if you sell your work to another publisher, the contract must stipulate the continued inclusion of the work in this anthology).
Hopefully we can get some fresh new names out there while benefiting the local community at the same time.
