Ends on

Open only to poets with ties to the North Country region.

PoemVillage is a beloved community program celebrating local poetry from neighbors and friends annually since 2016. This year, we will be hanging poems in windows all around Saranac Lake during National Poetry Month. Also, bundles of poems will be safely delivered to inboxes and to the ACW website daily from April 15 - May 15, 2022.


Review these guidelines before submitting to PoemVillage
1. Submissions will be open from Jan 1 to April 1
2. Each person may submit 1 poem. You will copy/paste your poem into the form below.
3. Poems must be under 300 words or 25 lines, whichever comes first. Poems that are too long will not be included, so please use the "word count" tool on your word processing software to check the length of your poem.
4. Please ensure that you have rights to offer this poem for publication. This poem must be your own work.
5. PoemVillage and the poems displayed are open only to poets with ties to the North Country. If you do not have ties to the region, please refrain from sending us poems. We generally consider the North Country Region to be anywhere within 30 minutes of the Adirondack Park.
5. Our plan is to publish all poems that meet these guidelines. We do reserve the right to not publish any poem that we feel does not reflect the community standards of Saranac Lake. This does not mean poems must be positive, but they cannot be hateful, violent, or threatening.
