Poets Corner skinner

WHO ARE WE


Poets’ Corner is a program of the Sacred and Creative section of the Effective Living Centre. It began in 2003 following the visit of Professor Mark Burrows, who fired our imagination with his exploration of poetry.

 

WHAT DO WE DO


At each of our bi-monthly meetings we have a guest poet, and members are also encouraged to read their own poems. Our group is made up of published poets, new poets and possible future poets. As writers, hearers or readers, we participate in the imaginative and creative process and deepen our insight and sensitivity to the world and our human condition.

Through poetry, with its exploration of the sacred, our lives are enhanced and nurtured. In 2010 Poets Corner published an anthology “Season of the New Heart”, and there are plans to publish a second anthology in 2020.

CURRENT PROJECTS

Poets’ Corner Anthology

We are currently inviting submissions for a poetry anthology chapbook, published by the Effective Living Centre’s Poets Corner. The anthology will contain poems by Poets Corner guest poets and Poets Corner attendees. We hope to launch the book in Spring 2020.

  • Poems must not have been published previously.
  • There is no theme.
  • Poems should have a maximum of 30 lines (a stanza break counts as 1 line) with a maximum of 50 characters per line (each space counts as 1 character).
  • Submissions must be received by 30th June 2020; poems received after that date will not be considered.
  • Inclusion in the anthology is not guaranteed; no correspondence regarding the selection will be entered into.

This will be a chapbook anthology specifically for Poets Corner guest poets and Poets Corner attendees. The editors are Russ Talbot, Louise Nicholas and Jude Aquilina.
