Townsend publishing house.
Hamill’s request that poets everywhere submit poems of protest, resulted in more than 15,000 submissions to The White House and thousands of poetry readings around the world. (Poems can be read online at (www.poetsagainstthewar.org) In an attempt to continue this effort and to encourage Island poets to support global consciousness, Vashon Bookshop is sponsoring this June event. Vashon poets are asked to submit a maximum of three original poems concerning peace, social consciousness, or humanism. Poems can be dropped off at the Bookshop or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline for submissions is June 5th. The judging will be “blind” and selected poets will be notified by June 9th. Poems will not be returned and selected poems will be kept in-hand for reading by the poets at the June event.
