Ends on

We had difficulty in finding a venue what seats 100 people for the LIVE part of Poetry Ink and are happy to be at the Rotunda, 4014 Walnut Street in Philadelphia on Sunday January 8. Beginning on Monday January 9 we will present those who could not join us live on zoom, since Moonstone now has poets from all over the country working with us. This also allows us to extend the deadline to October for submission to the 26th Annual Poetry Ink. Please join us.

We want you all: published poets, unpublished poets, academic poets, street poets, poets who write Sonnet, Villanelle, Haiku, Ekphrastic Poems, Concrete Poems, Epitaph, Elegy, Epigram, Limerick, Ballad,  Ode, Free Verse. Our 26th year of 100 poets reading in alphabetical order. Submit to our 26th anthology and to read.

Deadline: October 31, 2022

Event: January 8th, 2023


Anthology Submissions: Please submit one poem for our 26th Annual Poetry Ink Anthology.

Please limit your submission to one poem. 

Keep this poem limited to 35 lines total. When determining the total line length for each poem, include spaces between stanzas (ex: a poem of 5 couplets would equal 14 lines). Numbers or section breaks should also be included as lines when calculating the total line length. Count an epigraph as 3 extra lines. A line that has more than 60 characters (including spaces and punctuation) should be counted as two lines of your total line count. If lines are staggered like a Ferlinghetti poem, estimate the width of the line. 

The final book will be printed in 11 point Garamond font on pages that are 4 1/2 inches wide. Poems with lines longer than 4 1/2 inches may be rejected due to printing constraints.

We use Submittable to accept and review our submissions.
