POETRY BROADSIDE INVITATIONAL
In Honor of National Poetry Month
SEND US A POEM, PLEASE
Between now and March 15, members of 49 Writers are invited to submit poems and imagery for the 2021 Poetry Broadside Invitational, an online poetry exhibit to be posted during the month of April in honor of National Poetry Month. The exhibit will feature 30 “broadsides” of poetry distributed daily through the 49 Writers blog and social media platforms. In addition, Anchorage Public Library will invite featured poets to submit recordings of their poems for posting on its social media sites throughout the month. Help us celebrate poetry by submitting your work today!
- Your poem should be submitted by email in a Word document, in Arial font, and should not exceed 400 words or 20 lines. Your accompanying image should be submitted in .jpeg format, at least 1MB in size. Because of the publication platforms we use, we cannot accept submissions with complicated spacing or formatting.
- In the Word document relaying your submission, please provide your name, mailing address, email address and phone number. Also, please include the following statement: “I am the creator of the attached poem and image and authorize 49 Writers, Inc., and the Anchorage Public Library to publish them in online, audio and print formats, in their discretion, as part of the 2021 49 Writers Poetry Broadside Invitational.”
- Email your poem and image before March 15 to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Include “Poetry Broadside” in the subject line. If the number of submissions exceeds the 30-poem limit of available space, selections will be made by a committee designated by the 49 Writers board.
