Poems solicited for anthology; deadline is Monday

By
April 7, 2011 | Leave Comment

Monday is the deadline for submissions to an anthology of poetry about the city of Davis.

Organized by Davis Poet Laureate Allegra Silberstein, the project is based entirely in Davis: The 60-page anthology will be printed at a local printer, sold at local businesses and performed at local poetry venues. The project is supported by the city of Davis Art Contract Program, a program of the Davis Community Services Department Cultural Services Division.

The completed book is directed toward all the citizens of Davis, with poems celebrating and perhaps quarreling with the community. Silberstein hopes the anthology will allow Davisites a more meaningful interaction with their city and introduce local students to poetry in an accessible and relatable way.

Submissions will be judged by Silberstein; Danyen Powell, a Sacramento poet and workshop leader; and Andy Jones, host of the twice-monthly Davis Poetry Night Reading Series. The final anthology will be published with a cover that depicts local art representing Davis, and copies will be distributed to Davis businesses for purchase by local residents.

Each submitter may turn in up to three poems. Preference will be given to poems under 40 lines in length, but the poems will be viewed primarily on merit, with length a secondary concern. There is no entry fee.

Submitters should include a cover letter that includes the titles of the poems they’re submitting, their name, mailing address, email address if available, telephone number and a short bio. They should not include their name anywhere on the poems they submit.

Submitters also should include a self-addressed, stamped envelope for notification of contest results. A self-addressed, stamped postcard also may be included for notification of arrival of the poems. The poems will not be returned.

For more submission information, visit http://www.DavisPoetryBook.com, or mail submissions to Davis Poetry Project, P.O. Box 1033, Davis, CA 95617.
