FAIR CLOUT POETRY SERIES, @FairCloutPoetry, Poetry Publishing
Fair Clout Poetry is publishing high-edged, artistic poetry from compelling poetry writers from all around the world in an amazing poetry series collection at mid-year, annually.
In 2012, Fair Clout Poetry published poetry collections from the series creator and publisher Ahmed A. Hassan with the title ‘A Case of Lines‘. ‘A Case of Lines‘ is a collection of fifty master poetry pieces from the new and young, independent Nigerian writer Ahmed A. Hassan.
Since January 2013, submission for the Fair Clout Poetry writer selection opened to poetry writers from all around the world to help select the most compelling writer to work on the next Fair Clout Poetry series collection titled The Folk Sketches. Submission of poetry entries closed at the end of March, three months after its opening, with over twenty poetry entries from all around the world.
Fair Clout opened volunteer opportunities for the Fair Clout Poetry judge role to interesting and willing individuals from the public. Over four volunteers from all around the world were recorded. It is the policy of Fair Clout Poetry to have a minimum of 2-3 volunteer judges to preside over the poetry entries.
Judges will be selecting the three most compelling writers based on the Fair Clout Poetry writer selection policy. In the end, public polls, judges’ and publisher’s discretion will help choose one most compelling writer for the next poetry collection title.
