PoemTown Randolph seeks submissions

Fourth annual celebration of poetry held in april, deadline is Feb. 10
RANDOLPH—PoemTown Randolph organizers are excited to announce the fourth annual celebration of poetry in Randolph throughout April, National Poetry month, and are seeking submissions from Vermont poets as the centerpiece of the month-long event.
PoemTown Randolph 2017 presents a public opportunity for Vermont poets to share their work. Throughout April, posters of 100 selected poems will be displayed in the main windows and doors of businesses, churches, and organizations in the Randolph area. PoemTown organizers are planning special poetry events and poetry readings throughout April in several venues in town, culminating in a celebration at Chandler Music Hall. Further details will be announced later.
Organizers are currently soliciting poetry submissions from poets of all ages residing anywhere in Vermont. No more than three poems, each of 24 lines or less, typed or handwritten, should be submitted. Poets are asked to not resubmit work that has been displayed in previous Poetry Alive!, PoemCity displays in Montpelier or PoemTown Randolph, or that has previously appeared in print.
Poems may be submitted by mail no later than Feb. 10 to Janet Watton, 1387 Davis Road, Randolph Center, 05061, or hand delivered to a special PoemTown mailbox on the porch of Marjorie Ryerson at 36 Randolph Avenue in Randolph. For purposes of blind judging, the poet’s name, city/town of residence, email address, and phone number must be entered on the reverse side of the submitted poem page.
By sending work to PoemTown 2017, poets agree that PoemTown may use any poem in display, in promotional materials, and associated online, print, and other media.
Questions or expressions of interest in planning PoemTown events can be addressed to Janet Watton via email at musbird@gmail.com or by phone at 802-728-9402.
Past PoemTown displays and events have received strong support from local businesses and organizations, and similar enthusiasm is anticipated for the 2017 celebration.
PoemTown Randolph is supported in part by a grant from the Vermont Humanities Council.
