The BIG LIT Weekend Call for short poems:
BIG LIT The Stewartry Book Festival
April 14-17 2016
Poet Chrys Salt and her colleague Chik Duncan would be grateful for short poems of any kind (published or unpublished) to be displayed in high street windows over BIG LIT weekend in the Scottish town of Gatehouse of Fleet.
The poems: “are often left up long after the event and attract punters to The Festival.”
Send in Palatino 12 point font, with your name at the bottom and include acknowledgements for published poems.
For poem length, Chrys says: ‘Sonnet length is good; shorter is even better.’ (Apparently, the windows are small, Georgian ones!) ASAP would be good but no later than 14 March.
Please send to Chik Duncan: email@example.com
(P.S. I have it on good authority that, if you do send your poems, they will still be eligible for submission elsewhere, as public display does not constitute actual publication.)
