Calling All Poets (And not just Joyce Kilmer fans)

NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ (February 22, 2024) - A quarter century ago, a group of local poets and the New Brunswick Free Public Library tried an experiment -- having a poetry reading in celebration of National Poetry Month. The experiment was successful to the point where it has become a local tradition.

The library celebrates each April with a poetry booklet and a reading. This is your chance to be a published poet.

This will be the 24th-Annual Poetry Month Celebration Anthology. The Poetry Anthology is open to all poets - from novice to previously published, and from New Jersey to across the globe. The deadline for submissions is Thursday, March 21.

Please download the poetry submission form here.

Details of the annual poetry reading will be announced later.
