Second Sunday Poetry Series



Each poet is allotted a 15-minute showcase, so kindly submit a pre-timed set of about 13 minutes of poetry-- this allows for your opening remarks and in-between comments. If you need more time for comments, adjust your set accordingly-- this is your showcase. Please time your set before submitting. The idea is not to cram as many poems into 15 minutes as you can--this is difficult for the listeners--but to show an array of your work at a breathable pace. *No/very little profanity.* This series accepts poetry only-- no fiction, prose, translations, librettos, etc.
Please email all poems in one attachment to:
In the subject line please put “Poetry Submission”


We have decided to forego monthly deadlines-- and instead accept submissions on an ongoing basis. 

Readings begin as close to 3:30 as possible, and end at 5pm. There is a several-minute break between poets. The restaurant opens at 5, so it’s perfect to stay for dinner and/or drinks afterwards. And it’s a perfect way to thank owner, Timo Rodriguez, for hosting us!

I look forward to reading your work.
