only poets who read at the event will have their works read at the event included in the First Gong Anthology publication at the end of each year. However, any poet anywhere in the world, who writes in English or has a translation of their work in English can submit a (1) poem NOT MORE THAN 14 lines once a month with a publishing fee of N3000/10usd for their work to be included. Alternatively a one time payment of N30k/100Usd can be made for 12 poems in a year to be included in the anthology. However, poems not deemed fit to be part of anthology by our in-house editors will be dropped and an opportunity given to the poet to replace it or send in another one. A poem may be dropped for but not limited to grammatical errors and/or insensitive nature of the work.
