ANNIVERSARY POETRY ANTHOLOGY SUBMISSION CALL: COMMUNITY

Community – A Poetic Exaltation!

To celebrate Gertrude’s Writing Room’s third anniversary, we are calling on poets to write about community. Special guest editor Irene Moore Davis joins owner Vanessa Shields in this open call for writers near and far to submit their poetry.

Submissions open July 24th and close August 24th.

For submission guidelines, please CLICK HERE.


WE ARE OPEN!

Our first with open hours was a gentle success with writers booking workspaces and curious park-goers coming in to be ‘blown away’ by the writing room! Thank you to all those who stopped by for love and creative writing time!

We continue to upgrade our literary merchandise with fun bookish products. Do come in for a looky-loo and see what gifts tickle your literary fancy!

August hours will be posted soon.
