Thank you for a wonderful Poetry Month!

Dear Poets and Readers and Supporters and Shakers and Shouters and Music Makers,

Thank you for writing, sharing, reading and joining us during our 2nd Annual National Poetry Month celebration. We love the excitement over poetry that this month celebrates. If we thought we received a lot of submissions last year, we received twice as many this year.

Because of April Poetry Month’s popularity, starting tomorrow we will begin featuring one local Wisconsin Poet on the first Tuesday (hence, the series will be called “First Tuesdays”) of every month.

Submission Guidelines

This is on a first come, first serve basis with priority given to those who have not been previously featured on a First Tuesday or during April Poetry Month.

Please send the following to Amanda at

  • Three poems or three pages, whichever comes first as a Word Document (you may also wish to send a PDF for formatting purposes)
  • Bio (100 words or less)
  • Photo (.jpg)

The document and photos should be saved as your name so that they can be easily identified.

Poems can be previously published as long as you have the permission for it to be reprinted. Just let Amanda know where it was previously published so she can give proper credit.

Deadline: Rolling

Please Note: We already have a poet feature for the months of May through September.


Thank you!
