SLC Arts Call for Online Poetry Exhibit
SLC Arts is calling for poetry submissions for its 2023 “Poetry Thursday” online exhibit series to be posted through the SLC Arts social media platforms (@slcartsny), which will feature one poem a week on an ongoing basis throughout the year.
Poems should reflect the North Country of New York or be written by poets who have lived or are living in the North Country. All forms and lengths are welcome. The call for submissions officially opens on January 1, 2023 and will remain open indefinitely. Submissions can be made through SLC Arts’ submittable, which can be found HERE.
We ask that you attach 1-5 poems to your submission form; do not include your name and contact information on the poem attachments to ensure a fair jurying process. You are welcome to submit an original photograph or painting to pair with your poem, but it is not a requirement and will not impact poem selection.
Poems will be curated by Creatives Rebuild New York Poet Karyn Crispo, MFA.
