Virginians are asked to submit a poem to which they’ve found such a profound and personal connection that they feel as if the poet had written it with them in mind. In addition, each submission should include a 200-250 word essay on why the poem is meaningful to the person.
Deadline for submissions is June 30, 2013. Submissions and questions about the project should be sent to Sofia Starnes at firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information, please visit www.sofiamstarnes.com.
Ms. Starnes is the 2012-2014 Poet Laureate of Virginia. She is available for comment or interview. Contact her at (757) 220-8595 or email@example.com.
