Hi young poets! I’m an officer of PSI, Poetry Society Society of Indiana. One of my friends and sister PSI officer, Jenny Kalahar, is publishing an anthology of youth poetry from Indiana authors. Please consider submitting!
Are you living in Indiana and are you 12 to 18 years old? Please consider sending in your best poems for an upcoming anthology. Everyone who submits will become a member of the Youth Poetry Society of Indiana. The deadline for submissions is August 31, 2018. Please limit your submissions to 6 poems of up to 65 lines each. Any topic, any style, but non-rhyming poetry is preferred.
The book will be published this autumn and will be for sale on Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, and through many other outlets in the U.S. and around the world in softcover and ebook formats. You will retain your rights to the poem after this publication, and you may then use it however you would like.
There is NO fee for submissions, but we will not be able to pay you if you are published. Proceeds from the sale of the book will be used for book events in Indiana where you may come in person to read before an audience.
Send your poems by either email (Word documents or in the body of the email) or regular post. Please do not send handwritten works. Poems received after the postmarked date of August 31, 2018 will not be considered. With your submission, send a permission-to-publish statement signed by a parent or guardian if you are under the age of 18 (a scan attached with the email if sending electronic submissions). Send a short biography, your age, school name, and home address with your poems, and an email for your parent/guardian if they have one.
This publication is in association with the Poetry Society of Indiana, a not-for-profit organization.
To submit via email, send your works and permission-to-publish notice to: firstname.lastname@example.org
