Poets are invited to submit works on the theme "Sacred Places, Wild Spaces"
Poetry submissions are limited to one or two 8 ½ x 11 page
(with minimum .5 inch margins)
Limit of two poems per poet.
Entry fee: $10 for one poem; $15 for two.
We have decided not to hang poetry as part of the exhibit this year. Instead, we will create a book with this year’s submissions so that they can be appreciated more widely and with greater focus. Because the poems will not be hung, we are extending the length limitation from one to two pages.
For those who have already submitted poems: if you would like to submit a third poem in light of this change, we will accept it at no charge.
Or you may mail two copies (one with your name, one without)
along with completed entry form and entry fee to:
Westminster Presbyterian Church
1515 Helen Avenue
Portage, MI 49002
Poetry may be made via email or mail at any time through July 18.
We are pleased to announce that our 2020 poetry juror will be Gail Griffin, professor is the Parfet Distinguished Professor Emeritus of English at Kalamazoo College, where she taught from 1977 to 2013. She is also the author of several books.
