JC returns for the second year to curate “Poetry Quarter(PQ)” in the Glebe Report. For 2017, rather than collect and bank poems throughout the year, PQ will tailor calls to specified themes for each issue.
Full details of the call for submissions for the February, 2017, PQ appear on the home page of January’s Glebe Report at www.glebereport.ca.
Open for the first time to any poet writing in English who reads the Glebe Report and lives in the National Capital Region, February will celebrate Canada’s sesquicentennial through poems on subjects relevant to the people, history, culture, present and future of the Glebe and its neighbouring communities. Here are the basic guidelines. Poems should be:
- Original, unpublished in any medium (plus not submitted elsewhere)
- Up to 30 lines
- On any aspect of the theme within the bounds of public discourse
- By poets of all ages (school-age poets, please include your grade level)
- Submitted by January 20 to: firstname.lastname@example.org. (Please include contact info.)
