One poet and one prose writer are chosen for each reading & so get to read for ~20 minutes. submission welcomes previously published work and request no rights. Since we are doing our best to read blind, please make every effort to strip your work of identifying information before sending it to us (this includes the title of your cover letter in the Submittable form as well as in the margins of your submitted document). Please send only one submission per genre per reading period. A cover letter is not required. If you live more than a day’s drive away, please note in your cover letter that you’re aware that you would need to manage your own way to Portland.
Poets should submit 5-10 pages of poems. Prose writers should submit 5-15 double-spaced pages of prose. All writers should submit through our Submittable portal.
