JC is delighted that the Editor of community newspaper The Glebe Report has chosen to bring a poetry focus to the community four times a year with poems JC will select as ‘curator.’
“Poetry Quarter” welcomes submissions from poets who work, live, study or volunteer in the Glebe or in its close, neighbouring communities on subjects that reflect the lives and sensibilities of people living in this community and that are appropriate for publication in a paper with a an audience of all ages.
Poems can be in any form – rhyme, free verse, sonnets, haiku, found poems, etc., but must not be more than 30 lines in length. The work must be the poet’s own and should not have been published before anywhere, in any form or medium.
As ‘curator,’ I will recommend a number of poems per quarter to the Editor. Poets will be contacted if their work is slated for publication in “Poetry Quarter. We have already received many fine submissions and look forward to reading what emerging and established poet contribute to this project.”
The deadline for the first group of poems to be featured is October 9, 2015. Here’s the link to the website for specifics on how to submit. http://www.glebereport.ca/2015/08/glebe-report-poetry-quarter/
