PSM Five-year Anthology – 2021

Call for Submissions: Poetry Society of Michigan’s Anthology

The Poetry Society of Michigan (PSM) seeks poems for our five-year anthology—the theme is all things Michigan. If you are a current PSM member, or have been a PSM member in the past five years (from 2016 – December 31, 2020), we invite you to help us delve into this Michigan-inspired theme. We will consider a broad range of styles and topics on poems evoking this theme. Poems could be about such things as a Michigan moment/event, person, an insect, business, street, town, light houses, lakes, Black Lives Matter, the pandemic, the auto industry, and blueberries. If you are open to your work possibly being edited, please follow the below guidelines to submit by February 25, 2021. We look forward to reading your work!
