PoemTown Randolph invites Vermont poets of all ages to submit original poems for its 4th annual celebration. Chosen poems will be displayed on local business storefronts in celebration of National Poetry Month in April.

Please submit no more than three poems, each of them 24 lines or less. Poems can be typed or handwritten. The deadline for submissions is February 10th. All submissions will be judged that weekend, so meeting the 2/10 deadline is critical. Submissions may either be mailed to Janet Watton, 1387 Davis Road, Randolph Center, 05061 or physically dropped off at Marjorie Ryerson’s house at 36 Randolph Avenue, Randolph, 05060 in a marked box on her front porch, specifically designated for this purpose.

For the purposes of blind judging, the poet’s name, city/town of residence, email address, and phone number must be entered on the reverse side of the submitted poem page, not on the front of the poem.

In addition to displayed poems, PoemTown will offer poetry workshops and public readings. Programming is free and open to the public. This year’s events are supported in part by a grant from the Vermont Humanities Council.
