Tower Poetry Society, in collaboration with visual artist Lorraine Roy, presents… Po Art ry!
After the success of the first PoARTry event, we endeavour to create a similar collaboration between poets and artists that will showcase virtually with the possibility/opportunity for an in-person exhibition after the first year. This may become an ongoing event.
POETS will submit poems (PDF preferred) by (NEW DEADLINE) NOVEMBER 30th to: email@example.com, with “PoARTry Submission” in the subject line. Poems should inspire innovative visual art.
We are aiming for 12 – 15 poem/art pairings throughout 2023. Poems will be posted on the Tower Poetry Website (insert link) for artists to select. Once a poem is selected, it will be removed from the selection pool (first come first serve).
ARTISTS will select a poem from this page to inspire the art. Please send your name, contact information, and links to your website/platforms, along with your selected poet’s name & poem title to firstname.lastname@example.org. A comfortable timeline for your project will be discussed upon submitting your choice of poem, and we will expect a clear professional photo or photos upon completion. Depending upon volume and fit, we reserve the right to defer or decline submissions.
We will display a poem/visual art pair each month (more in April in honour of Poetry Writing Month) on our social media platforms and link it to artist/poet pages/platforms.
PLEASE INCLUDE LINKS TO YOUR PAGES/PLATFORMS with your submissions.
Note: One poem or art submission/year.
