Major change to orders by Contributing Poets
Beginning with the 2016-17 San Diego Poetry Annual, and by special arrangement with our new printer, copies will be made available to contributing poets at a special rate to those ordering from our online e-store.
Contributing Poets — You will no longer have to pick up your pre-paid copies at a scheduled reading. Copies ordered through our online e-store will be shipped directly to you.
- The special rate per copy is the actual cost of production.
- The special rate will be announced prior to March 1st each year.
- Orders for copies at the special rate will be available for two (2) months — from March 1st to May 1st each year.
- Contributing Poets may order unlimited copies at the special rate.
- Sales tax and shipping charges will be added at the time of ordering.
- The Publisher makes no profit on sales to Contributing Poets.
- Poets are never required to buy a copy or pay any fee to have poems published in the annual.
To qualify for this special rate, contributing poets must order through our online e-store, using a discount code.
The link to our online e-store and the discount code will be sent to Contributing Poets in February each year by e-mail and/or Facebook messages/postings.
- Our online e-store accepts credit cards and PayPal.
- Ordering through our online e-store is as safe, secure and simple as ordering through Amazon.com.
- Orders placed through our online e-store are fulfilled through Amazon.com and receive first priority from Amazon.com.
- The discount code will work only from March 1st to May 1st.
- The annual is published in association with a local arts non-profit, the San Diego Entertainment & Arts Guild (SDEAG), a 501(c)(3) public charity. All purchases are therefore tax-deductible.
Sales at Scheduled Readings
Copies offered at our scheduled readings will be sold at the retail price.
- We are now able to accept payment by credit card, as well as by personal check and cash, at our scheduled readings.
- Please check this website for updates about our scheduled readings, and look for e-mails from Regional Editors and the Publisher.
