Calling on all experienced poets, writers, educators, editors, critics ...

In 2014 Printable Reality, in association with The New Zealand Poetry Society and Splice, is presenting ‘Poems4Peace 2014’ - a literary project that will include a poetry competition, live poetry events, workshops and a publication.

By the end of January 2014 poets will be invited to submit poetry expressing the concept of peace for our world. The three best entries will receive awards, and another 40 poems will be selected for performance and publication. All contributing poets will be invited to a prize-giving ceremony and are welcome to present their work to the audience.

We would like to offer the opportunity to two experienced judges to select the best poems from the entries. Successful candidates will be given further instruction and a week in March, to make their selections.

Please email a short bio by 15th January to: - by Wednesday 15th January 5pm - and tell us why would you make a perfect candidate for this role.

Modest payment will be offered to the judges, depending on the final amount of funding received.

‘Poems4Peace 2014’ is a project advocating poetry in education and performance, plus community engagement as effective ways to build a culture of peace. The year-long program will provide an excellent platform to make contemporary poetic voices heard and contribute to influencing a whole new generation of peace-makers in NZ and beyond. The expression articulated in the art/events/publications created will reflect modern views of world peace and the atmosphere of the times - a collective voice that is forever asking ... an echo that dictates: the call for peace.( More partners for the project TBA )

Let's make poetry a strong link, between awareness and action!
