CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: POEMS FOR POEMTOWN ST. JOHNSBURY

St Johnsbury, VT: PoemTown St. Johnsbury, a collaboration between Catamount Arts, the St. Johnsbury Athenaeum, and the St. Johnsbury Chamber of Commerce, celebrates poetry through the posting of poems on business windows, poetry readings and slams, writing workshops, and more. PoemTown St. Johnsbury is a satellite site for Montpelier’s PoemCity, a month-long celebration of National Poetry Month in April.

Poets are invited to submit one or two original poems on the theme “Witness.” “We invite poets to use the theme as a point of departure for their writing,” said Anne Campbell, Education Director of Catamount Arts. “We are open to Vermont writers of any age, not just published poets, and we are particularly interested in the voices of Northeast Kingdom poets.”

Poems must be submitted to Catamount Arts by midnight on February 28, 2018. Poems must conform to submission guidelines, which are posted on the Catamount Arts website (catamountarts.org) and may also be picked up at the Catamount Arts box office, St. Johnsbury Athenaeum, and the St. Johnsbury Welcome Center.

Montpelier’s PoemCity, formerly Poetry Alive!, has celebrated poetry for 8 years. In addition to PoemTown St. Johnsbury, there are two other satellites: PoemTown Randolph and PoemCampus at Norwich University. Details about PoemTown St. Johnsbury’s poetry postings and events will be announced at a later date. For more information about poetry submissions, please contact Anne Campbell at Catamount Arts, 802-748-2600, extension 108.
