Poetry 150 submission deadline
August 15, 2017, 12:00 AM EDT
Calgary Spoken Word Society, Single Onion Poetry Society and Free Fall Magazine are having a poetry contest for Canada’s 150. The poem should be no more than 600 lines and no longer than a five-minute reading time. All the poems must deal with Canada and our 150th birthday. Poems can reference the people, the history, the land or all three, but should stay as close to topic as possible.
The poems will be curated by a group of five poets: Weyman Chan, Micheline Maylor, Kirk Miles, Julian Smith, and Sheri-D Wilson. The top five poems will be published in Free Fall Magazine and the poets will perform their work.
