Excitement is growing in anticipation of our new 2018 Student Poetry Collection.

  Futures will bring critical acclaim to the work of many exceptional young authors
from across the United States.

Did you know that only a small percentage of students who submit poetry will be published?
In fact, less than 20 percent of all submissions
will be included in the new 2018 Student Poetry Collection.

Any author whose work we have offered to showcase in Futures
must sign and return the "Artist's Release" form
to authorize us to print the poem,
but all rights to the poem itself remain with the author.

The "Artist's Release" form also serves as an "Order" form.
