Cultural trail Call for poets: Deadline Nov. 22

Three poems will be featured on bus shelters designed for the southeast corridor of the Cultural Trail along Virginia Ave., collectively entitled "Moving Forward" by local architect Donna Sink. Published poets living in or with ties to Indiana are invited to submit work based on subjects such as community, neighborhoods, landmarks, shared spaces, transportation, history and the future. Poets must have published at least one poem in a print magazine or anthology prior to submitting work for “Moving Forward.” Selected poems may have been published previously.

The Writers’ Center of Indiana is administering a selection process with out-of-state jurors. Authors of the three selected poems will each receive a $1,000 award. Submissions are due by Sunday, Nov. 22. Selections will be announced in March 2010. Poems will be displayed in their entirety on a stainless steel panel on the shelter. Excerpts of the poem will be embedded in the ecoresin panels.

Download the call for poets or call the Indiana Writers' Center, 317.255.0710, for more information.
