Submit Your Poetry

Call for Submissions for Our Monthly Readings
Deadline: July 23, 2017 for Sunday, August 13, 2017 reading

Britt-Marie's is proud to present our Second Sunday Poetry Series which is curated by Bay Area poet, Barb Reynolds. Our next event is Sunday, August 13, 2017. Each 2nd Sunday of the month, 3 poets will read from their works.

Submission Guidelines below.

Please submit about 13-14 minutes of poetry. Each poet has a 15-minute showcase and this allows for opening remarks and in-between comments. Please time your set before submitting. The idea is to show an array of your work at a breathable pace, rather than cramming as many poems into 15 minutes as you can–which is difficult for the listeners. *Please, go light on the profanity.*

Please email poetry--all poems in one attachment-- to:

In the subject line please put “Poetry Submission”


The deadline for the September 10th reading is August 20th.

The deadline is always 3 weeks before the next reading, and the readings are always on the Second Sunday of the month.

We are changing the time of the reading to 3:30-5, rather than 4-5pm. This will allow for a several minute break in between poets.

I look forward to reading your work! If you are not chosen in the current reading period, your work may be considered for future readings. 

Spread the word!

Thanks, Barb
