Collective Visions Gallery of Bremerton, Front Street Gallery of Poulsbo and the Poulsbohemian Coffeehouse are collectively sponsoring the seventh annual ARS POETICA Poetry Contest, and are seeking submissions from Kitsap, Jefferson and Mason county poets now.
Jury-selected poems will be chosen by gallery artists, who will create interpretive artworks inspired by the poems. Art works and poems that inspired them will be displayed side-by-side for one month at sponsoring galleries throughout April, May and/or June 2018.
Poetry readings will also be scheduled featuring poems and artworks.
The deadline for submission is midnight Friday, Jan. 5.
There is a $15 entrance fee, and authors are permitted to submit up to three poems, on any subject and in any style, of no more than 26 lines (including title and all line spaces).
Email poems, as a Word document, to Sharon E. Svendsen at garshar5449@Q.com. Do not include author’s name on the poems, but do include author’s ID and contact info (name, address, email, phone number, and title(s) of poem(s) submitted) in the email or cover letter for mailed entries.
