A quick reminder to Whatcom County poets:

Submissions to the Sue C. Boynton Poetry Contest close on Wednesday, March 31, 2021, and in-person submissions (delivered to Film is Truth) end a day earlier because the venue is closed on Wednesdays. Read (and follow!) the guidelines and send in your poem!

Attention, Whatcom County poets: you have just two more weeks to submit your poem to the 2019 Sue C. Boynton Poetry Contest. The submission deadline is 6:00pm, Sunday, March 31, 2019. Submissions can be mailed, hand-delivered, or emailed, but they must arrive by the deadline.

August 2016

Though it’s not quite mid-July and August seems waaaay off, there are a couple of August opportunities with deadlines you may not want to miss.

Signups for the August Poetry Postcard Fest close on Sunday, July 17, 2016.

Signups for The Poetry Marathon close on Tuesday, July 19, 2016.

Both of these poem-generating events require a personal commitment and a certain amount of prep. But participating in one or both means that you’ll end up with a chapbook’s worth of poem drafts to show for your summer.

You can find more information on the August Poetry Postcard Fest (APPF) on the APPF website, the official call, the 56 Days of August site (about the APPF anthology) and 56 Days of August Facebook page.

There’s more on The Poetry Marathon on the website, the blog, The Poetry Marathon Facebook page and on NewPages.com.

P.S. These are both international events. Poets everywhere are invited to participate.

It’s too late to mail your poem, but you can deliver it to Mindport Exhibits, 210 W. Holly Street, Bellingham (open both days Noon to 6pm) OR email it to BoyntonPoetryContest@hotmail.com. Of course, read the guidelines carefully — line count and character count matter here, and poems that don’t meet the guidelines will be disqualified.

P.S. Whether you submit a poem or not, be sure to mark your calendar for Thursday, May 12, 2016, and join the judges, the award winners, the contest committee and poetry fans from all over at the 2016 Boynton Awards Ceremony, 7:00pm at the Bellingham Cruise Terminal.

Yes we're open

Now and then, we encourage poets to submit their work to Cascadia-based print and online literary journals by posting a list of those that are currently accepting work for publication. This is one of those updates.

It is not a comprehensive list of publications that originate in Cascadia; it is only those that have pending deadlines. Also, it does not include contests, which typically have separate deadlines (i.e., Crab Creek Review, Pacifica Literary Review).

Read the publications before submitting and, of course, follow the guidelines to the letter. All dates are 2016.
