We Share the Sky

3rd Wednesday Magazine’s “Poem of the Week” is actually two poems from The InsideOut Literary Project, each written by 3rd grade students from Dearborn, Michigan. You can learn more about the project at their website, https://insideoutdetroit.org/

These poems and others from I/O are featured in the Spring issue of 3rd Wednesday (due out near the end of March) as will the winners from our annual poetry contest.

3rd Wednesday’s 50/50 Contests

xiii1winter2020Since we began publication 13 years ago, 3rd Wednesday has been a token paying market, offering payment of $3 per accepted piece. We have noticed that many of our contributors choose to opt out of payment, thus contributing in their small way to the cause of literature.

Beginning with the summer 2020 issue, we offer a new alternative. The poems of each submitter who chooses to waive payment and contribute $3 to an ongoing contest pool will be eligible for a larger payout of 50% of the net contributions for that issue or $50 (which ever is larger), plus a one year subscription to the print edition of the magazine (a $28 value).
