Below is a summary of open opportunities for poets interested in participating in WordXWord events.
Wear your walking shoes as poetry takes a walk Upstreet with stops along the way for poetry al fresco. Poet? Get on the list!
[Mis]information is raining down 24/7. Poets help us sort it out or - perhaps - just make matters worse. We’re definitely not fact-checking this.
PCC invites poets to join us for a series of events focusing on important themes/issues in our current national discourse. We encourage you to find your own way in.
The fine print - no personal attacks (if you need to address an individual or specific institution in your work, anonymize it). Poetry, unaccompanied rap or short story - 3 minutes or less. Collaborations (multi-voice pieces) are welcome (encouraged!).
Poets compete one-on-one armed with only 17 syllables - limited number of spots are open on a first-come basis. Find out more about Head-To-Head Haiku including what you'll need to do to prepare
