Blue Mountain Arts Submission Guidelines: $300 for Greeting Cards

Blue Mountain Arts is an established publisher of greeting cards. They pay $300 for exclusive worldwide rights to use poetry in greeting cards and other products.

They want “contemporary prose or poetry written from personal experience that reflects the thoughts and feelings people today want to communicate to one another, but don’t always know how to put into words.”

They have regular deadlines for annual themes. They are:

  • Christmas & General Holiday: July 15
  • Valentine’s Day: September 12
  • Easter: November 8
  • Mother’s Day: December 13
  • Father’s Day: February 7

They accept submissions via email as well as postal mail.

They also have an annual poetry contest, which oddly pays just as much as a normal greeting card. The deadline is December 31st. You can enter the contest here.
