Call For Poems for Great Falls Anthology

Maria Mazziotti Gillan, Founder and Executive Director
of the Poetry Center, at the Great Falls
The Poetry Center at PCCC seeks poems for an anthology to celebrate the Great Falls, the Passaic River and environmental issues.

The deadline is December 5, 2013.

The anthology’s poets will be invited to read as part of the Great Falls Literary Festival on May 10, 2014.

The judges seek poetry rooted in the literary tradition that honors place, narrative, clarity and specificity. Poets can write about any aspect that subtly or overtly relates to the Falls, the River or any part of its eco-system and natural environment. Likewise, they may write from a personal experience regarding immigration and labor in Paterson or with the River and its creatures, plants, history, scenic beauty and changes.
