Call For Submissions: Poetry on the Wall

The Crossing Arts Alliance (TCAA) invites those interested to submit up to three poems for Poetry on the Wall. Poets, consider this opportunity to exhibit your work and read during the reception. The deadline for submissions is Jan. 2, 2013. Submission forms may be downloaded as PDF:

Poets of any age must have resided for at least four months of the past year in the following counties of Minnesota: Cass, Crow Wing, Morrison, Todd and Wadena. Poetry must be submitted using black text on white background only (no graphics), preferably submitted as a Word file or PDF via email to by Jan. 2, 2013. (If you are using an unusual font, provide the poem as a PDF.) Poetry submitted on a white 8.5 x 11” sheet will also be accepted.

The submission fee of $10 per poet (or $5 for Crossing Arts Alliance members) helps defray the cost of the reception/reading.

No poetry shall violate any copyright and must be appropriate for a general audience. Poetry may be published or unpublished work. Poets will be notified Jan. 7, 2013, via email, as to whether or not the poems were accepted by the jury. Contact TCAA at 218-833-0416 or if you have any questions.

Poets are invited to read their poetry at the poets’ reception and reading on Jan. 26, from 1-3 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. Poets are encouraged to invite guests. A People’s Choice will be chosen at that time.
