Submission Deadline for 25th Annual Poetry Ink
Poetry Ink is Moonstone Arts Center’s annual celebration of poetry in all of its forms. This event is an opportunity for all poets to share their work and to be exposed to new poetry.
In addition to celebrating poetry, we are also celebrating anniversaries at Moonstone Arts Center. This is the 25th year of Poetry Ink and the 40th anniversary of Moonstone. This anthology will include ANY poet who has read at or for Robin’s Book Store/ Moonstone Arts Center, EVER, as well as those who want to read this year.
WE WANT YOU ALL: Academic Poets, Famous Poets, Unknown Poets, Free Form Poets, Street Poets, Spoken Word Poets, Published Poets, Unpublished Poets, everyone.
Send us a poem if you have ever read at Moonstone in the last 40 Years or if you would like to read this year.
Deadline for submissions: May 15, 2021
Program: June 13, 2021
Please limit your submission to one poem, maximum of 35 lines total. When determining the total line length for each poem, include spaces between stanzas (ex: a poem of 5 couplets would equal 14 lines). Numbers or section breaks should also be included as lines when calculating the total line length. Count an epigraph as 3 extra lines. A line that has more than 60 characters (including spaces and punctuation) should be counted as two lines of your total line count. If lines are staggered like a Ferlinghetti poem, estimate the width of the line and remember that the final book will be printed in 12 point Times New Roman font on pages that are 5 1/2 inches wide.
