Poetry Downtown Rutland Submission Deadline
Time & Location
About the Event
April is National Poetry Month. The Paper Poet invites you to contribute to Poetry Downtown Rutland.
We are currently soliciting original poetry submissions from poets of all ages. No more than three poems should be submitted, each of them 24 lines or less. The deadline for submission is March 27, 2021.
Poets will have their poem on display in a Rutland downtown business front window during National Poetry Month. Poems will be displayed from early April through the first week of May. The community is invited to celebrate by following the pop-up poetry path and reading the poems in the window displays.
Submit poems for consideration using the following guidelines:
1. Send 1-3 poems as MS Word attachments (no PDFs please). Each poem must be no longer than 24 lines. Each poem should be attached separately in the email with the title of the poem as each document’s name.
2. Please include in your email submission the following information: your name, mailing address, city/town of residence, telephone number, and Instagram or other social media handle (if applicable).
3. If you are school-aged, please let us know your age and where you go to school, or if you are home-schooled (optional).
Submit to: email@example.com (please put "Poetry Downtown Rutland" in subject line)
*By sending your work to The Paper Poet for the project, Poetry Downtown Rutland, poets agree to the following: Poetry Downtown Rutland may use poems in display, in promotional materials, and in associated online, print, or other media. All other rights remain with the author. Poets will be credited for their work in all places their poems appear.
