April is National Poetry Month
RANDOLPH—PoemTown organizers are currently soliciting original poetry submissions from poets of all ages residing anywhere in Vermont. No more than three poems should be submitted, each of them 24 lines or less. The deadline for submission is Feb. 15.
Poets should send poems as MS Word or rtf attachments to email@example.com. No pdfs please!
In the text of an email, please include the poet’s contact information (name, mailing address, email address and telephone number). Each poem should be attached separately in the email with the title of the poem as each document’s name.
Poets are asked not to submit any work that has been previously displayed in any PoemTown or PoemCity celebrations, and also to not submit any poems that have previously appeared in print anywhere else.
For poets without access to email, please contact Janet Watton at 802-728-9402 to clarify an alternate submission process.
This 8th annual PoemTown will be scaled back due to Covid, but poems in the windows, the annual anthology, and outdoor readings this summer will be a welcome celebration of poetry and community.
