Poetry in Plain Sight Is Back and Broader than Ever

Poetry in Plain SightAfter a brief hiatus, Poetry in Plain Sight has returned in expanded form!

Poetry in Plain Sight, initially a prorgram of the Winston-Salem Writers and now in collaboration with the North Carolina Poetry Society, features “North Carolina poets and their poetry in street-visible locations.”

Select poems are laid out on beautifully designed posters. These prints are displayed in storefronts and other high-traffic, public areas, often “arts districts and downtown spaces.”

Four poems will be featured each month in Winston-Salem and associated cities, including New Bern and Waynesville, beginning March, 2018.

Poets may submit to have one of their poems included in the program. The deadline to submit for 2018 is December 31. Poems should not exceed twenty lines or line lengths of 4-1/2 inches, 12-point type.

Poets who are selected for this program will receive a complimentary poster and an invitation to read at a live Poetry in Plain Sight event.
