Submission Guidelines

+ ARTWORD is open to all poets who live in Maine.

+ Poets should focus their primary attention on works currently on view in the Portland Museum of Art not those included in temporary special exhibits, though poems in response to any work in the permanent collection will be considered. Half-price admission is available for those who identify themselves as poets working on ARTWORD submissions. The entire PMA collection is viewable online at collections.portlandmuseum.org.

+ Submit up to three previously unpublished poems (no more than six pages total) as a single Word or PDF document.

Below the title of each poem, please note the artist and title of the work that inspired the poem.

+ Your name and contact information (email and phone) should appear on every page.

+ Include a short biography with your cover letter.

+ Deadline: December 31, 2017
