April 1 – 30, 2021 – yep, a long read

Poems on windows of shops around downtown Bloomsburg. Poets are invited to submit poems to be printed and then placed in shop windows in Bloomsburg.


Poetry should be submitted to:  rpapril2021poems@gmail.com as a Word attachment or pdf.

Deadline for submissions is March 25, 2021.

Single letter-page [8 ½ x 11 inch) length poems are strongly encouraged for ease of presentation and display. A maximum of three [3] poems per poet may be submitted.

The poem(s) should have the poet’s name at the lower right corner of the page. Contact information (name, address, email, phone number) must be provided.

Poems will be accepted with the understanding that all copyrights belong to the creator of the poem.

Poems will be returned to the poet unless River Poets is instructed otherwise. Not all poems submitted may be placed or displayed.

There is no fee required and no payment offered in this project.

Folks who like poetry or who have attended River Poets events in the past are encouraged to get out of their houses, take a walk, find some shared words by local writers.  And shop, too.
