Subterranean Blue Poetry Presents!

The New Age Renaissance Republic White Flag Manifesto

"we surrender . . . now give us what we want"

"Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
- from The New Colossus
(inscribed on the Statue of Liberty)
by Emma Lazarus

We the people of Subterranean Blue Poetry announce . . . we are the democracy of poetry, a true meritocracy for the best reads of the New Age Renaissance Republic. That whosoever enter these walls shall be forever celebrated. Give us your poor, your downtrodden, those of heavy hearts, your brilliant Poets and Artists and we shall publish them.

We the undersigned,

Subterranean Blue Poetry

Subterranean Blue Poetry is an Internet Poetry Café that publishes New Age poetry and art. We also offer Online Poetry/Art Workshops, Book Marketing Services, Poetry Book Publishing Services, French Language Poetry Translation and WebSite Development @ Services. We consider the works of all Poets that send poetry and are particularly looking for homegrown Poets from the Canadian/American Indian Community, Quebec, small town Canada, international Poets and anyone who was ever considered “the other”. If it sings and has zing it's in.

Subterranean Blue Poetry's mandate is to promote emerging and established Poets, introducing Poets and their poetry to a wider audience and to discover new poetry/art synergies. With the flourishing online self-publishing market we provide a guide to some of the truly great poetry reads of the New Age. The Online Magazine has a nominal subscription fee, ($5 per Issue and $25 per yearly subscription - PayPal Email: and we pay our Poets/Artists $10 per poem, $20 per Poetry Article, and $20 per art/photo for the masthead. It is not healthy when Poets/Artists are not paid for their work, the work of Artists is important and what they do should be recognized. There are no reading fees, no great Poet/Artist should be overlooked because they have a lack of financial resources. The artefacts of culture are important and should be recognized and promoted, in the Spirit of the New Age.

New Age Artists are invited to send .jpgs of their original artworks for the masthead of the Poetry Issue, one piece of art is published for every Poetry Issue. We are looking for New Age Art that is beautiful, yet compelling, tells the truth, yet creates mythologies.

We pay you $20 per Artist's Photo .jpg. Paid in the month of publication by PayPal or EFT.

New Age Writers are invited to send Articles of Poetic Interest - Biographies and Stories about Poets (alive and passed), new genres, literary criticism, Poetry Book Reviews and Introductions, Poetry Events Reviews (poetry readings, poetry book signings, art installations with poetry) insightful Montrealais, Canadian, North American and International writings about Poetry and Poetry Events.
