Wax Poetry and Art started in 2010 as a small format print magazine that was funded by donations at Passion Pitch poetry shows in Calgary, Alberta. The shows and the magazine were organized and published by Calgary poet Kirk Ramdath. The magazine was a poetry experiment that found a receptive audience. Over 10,000 free print copies were distributed to the people of Calgary before the magazine switched to an online-only format in June 2014.

Wax Poetry and Art’s focus is on Canadian content in English. Regular submissions are open to residents of Canada only. We are interested in representing the widest possible range of Canadian writing and art as possible, so we welcome submissions from all Canadians, including those from marginalized communities.
