Brick Street Poetry Inc. is seeking submissions of original children’s poetry – poetry for children written by either adults or kids of any age. Poems submitted must have never been published anywhere before. Poets are permitted to submit a maximum of three poems.
Each poem is to be contained to one page of a Microsoft Word document, prepared in Times New Roman 12-point font, with one-inch margins on all four sides. The poet’s contact information – name, address, email and phone number – are to be placed at the top of each page. Preference will be given to poems that contain one or more of the following characters: a frog, a moose, bees and bears. However, poems without these characters will still be considered.
Deadline for submissions is Aug. 31. Please email your submissions to: firstname.lastname@example.org with your poems sent as attachments.
The poems selected will be published in a book before the end of 2016 and given to children who are patients in Indianapolis hospitals. The cost of publishing was made possible by a grant from the Nicholas H. Noyes, Jr., Memorial Foundation.
Brick Street Poetry Inc. is a 501 (c) 3 not-for-profit based in Zionsville, Indiana that sponsors the monthly poetry series, Poetry on Brick Street, publishes the Tipton Poetry Journal, and hosts a wide variety of other poetry-related projects.
