We mentioned this back in March, so this is just a gentle reminder that submissions are still open for Washington 129, the anthology of poems by Washington State writers being assembled by Washington’s Poet Laureate, Tod Marshall. According to the call for submissions, “all poets, no matter age or experience level, are encouraged to submit. Poems are not required to address Washington geography, imagery, or culture directly, but those that do will be given priority consideration.”
Poems must be previously unpublished. Submit no more than three poems as a single Microsoft Word attachment or in the body of an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to include your name, phone number and email address. (Poems may also be submitted by U.S. mail; details on the call for submissions.)
One hundred twenty-nine (one for each year of Washington’s statehood up to 2018) of the poems will be included in a print anthology; an additional selection will be assembled into an e-book available online.
Visit the Washington 129 page on the Washington Poet Laureate site, download the call for submissions and send your poems!
