Quick Facts about Words on the Go
Poems must be: approximately 20 lines or less, previously unpublished, written by local first-time or established poets of any age.
We look for poems that celebrate words, the region, an experience, and/or personal thoughts and feelings. The poems may take on a regional flavor or be an inspiring look at life and the language.
We look for poems that feel fresh and use words in exciting ways. Some poems are chosen because they so clearly reflect our local experience, others because they are a powerful and effective use of words.
During our judging process, we hope to have a broad range of input and, to some extent, the poems accepted should be a vibrant picture of our community.
