In collaboration with The /temz/ Review's 845 Press, Collusion is publishing a pair of digital poetry anthologies to encourage charitable giving during the pandemic.


Those who've supported literary or charitable causes since March 1st will be able to "buy" copies with their receipts.


845 Press is calling for poetry that is in some way about COVID-19.


Collusion Books is calling for collaborative poetry created during quarantine, social distancing, or conditions preventing social distancing.

Submissions will be handled through The /temz/ Review's submission manager.

Deadline is March 28, 2020.


​Submissions are now open for publication in fall of 2020.

Though submissions needn't do or be all three of these at once, Collusion Books

  1. seeks to promote collectivism in poetry;

  2. encourages hybridity between poetry and other artistic forms; and

  3. particularly welcomes conceptual, experimental, constrained, formal, and speculative works.
