Calling All Poets and Poetry Lovers!

The New Brunswick Free Public Library, co-sponsored by the Raritan Valley Federation of Libraries, has compiled its Annual Poetry Month Celebration Anthology in April 2021. For the first time ever, the Anthology is virtual; it is embedded in this webpage!

All poets who submitted to the anthology were invited to read their published poems at the Virtual Poetry Reading on April 19 at 7:00 p.m. Guests were invited to this virtual event, which was free and open to the public. You can watch the recording of this event here.

The Poetry Anthology is open to all poets - from novice to previously published, and from New Jersey or across the globe. The deadline for this year's submissions was March 19, 2021. For details, you may download a Poetry Submission Form here. Look for next year's submission form beginning in February.
