Summertide Poetry in the Park: New Growth / Calls & Submissions

April 22, 2022

Organization Name: The Port Angeles Fine Arts Center

Organization Location: Port Angeles, WA

Type: Calls & Submissions

Fee: $18


The Port Angeles Fine Arts Center seeks submissions for original poetry for year-long display in Webster’s Woods Sculpture Park. The theme of this year’s summer park installations is New Growth. In addition to writings that explore concepts of growth, development, and transformation, we welcome submissions that represent new exploration or growth in the poet’s creative process.

A total of 10 poems will be selected for print signs along the walking trails alongside more than 100 existing sculptures throughout the park’s 5 acres of forested parkland and open meadow. Participating authors will be invited to present their poems in a public reading as part of the Arts Center’s Summertide Solstice Festival on June 18.

Located less than a mile from the main entrance to Olympic National Park, Webster’s Woods welcomes over 50,000 visitors annually. Entrants are encouraged to plan a visit to experience firsthand the park’s rugged terrain, second-growth Olympic forest, and striking views over the Strait of Juan de Fuca.

Open to writers of all ages & experience levels who reside on or write about the Olympic Peninsula, including those whose work was selected & displayed at Poetry in the Park in 2021.
