IT STARTS WITH A MINDSTATE, AND WILL LOOK LIKE THIS:
Away, away drift the children of life never-ending
Further and further from pain and sorrow we float
Since the beginning of time, this separation has been pending
Fear disappears, and away we go
Off to the days of no bad tomorrows
Into bliss we transcend
A constant forward motion, of which there is no need to pretend against

ART CONTEST: For each poem, I will be choosing 1 piece of reader-submitted visual art to accompany it in the hard-copy, with the artists whose works are chosen receiving 2 free hard-copies and credit in the book as the prize. I will also be choosing a cover piece from the submissions. All artists who send me a piece of art will receive a little care package that I’m getting together as we speak 🙂 (only 1 piece of art per artist will be selected (though there is no limit to the amount of submissions an artist can submit), and each piece must be specific for 1 poem (submissions that do not specify what their art goes with will be discarded and not considered)) (the cover piece will be selected from the regular submissions; there is no need to specify if you would like for your work to be considered for the cover, as all submissions will be automatically considered for the cover). You can submit your entries to firstname.lastname@example.org, or, if it’s more convenient for you, you may send me an email to email@example.com saying that you would rather I give you an address to send a physical copy to, and I will do so. Make sure to include a return address or email address in order to get confirmation that your art was received, or that it won!
Disclaimer: Once received, the art belongs to me, Aaron J Kaplan, for purposes only of publishing in the hard-copy of Happiness Factory, but it will be credited to the artist, and I will do my best to reach the artist to let them know of the selection and to attempt to send them their copies of the book. All art must be original; previously published art is not permissible. All liability is released from Aaron J Kaplan and affiliated parties in the case of plagiarism, as we will source all art to the best of our abilities.
Get those creative juices flowing and you might just win yourself a spotlight!! The quicker I get those 51 pieces, the quicker the hard-copy will be published, along with a 6-song EP and several short stories (all included).
