Stuart and Stephen want your love poems to Stephen Harper

and they want 'em now!

Comrade poet!

Since Parliament has been prorogued, you're probably just sitting on your
hands, bereft. But things are looking up!

You are invited to submit a poem for consideration for a new anthology to be
published by Mansfield Press just in time for the reconvening of Parliament
on March 3.

The collection is titled Rogue Stimulus: The Stephen Harper Holiday
Anthology for a Prorogued Parliament. We're looking for poems of up to 75
lines: your tender musings on Stephen Harper.

We have to move fast. The deadline is midnight on Tuesday, January 19.
Payment for your contribution is one copy of the anthology. It's gonna look
good and it's gonna be full of good poems.

The editors of Rogue Stimulus are Ottawa poet Stephen Brockwell and
Toronto/Cobourg poet Stuart Ross. Denis De Klerck, publisher of Toronto
literary house Mansfield Press, is oiling up the machinery for quick action,
to ensure the anthology's timely release.

Please email your poem (preferably as a Word attachment) to:

We look forward to hearing from you.

Stephen and Stuart
