Deadline for submissions – Thursday, April 1, 2021
The City of New Westminster is accepting submissions from local writers (poets, spoken word artists and storytellers) with diverse voices and perspectives in consideration for the City’s Poet Laureate Program. BIPOC (black, Indigenous and people of colour) and equity-seeking literary artists are strongly encouraged to apply for this opportunity. The term “equity seeking” refers to those in the community that face entrenched marginalization due to attitudinal, historic, social and environmental barriers including age, ethnicity, disability, economic status, gender, nationality, race, sexual orientation or transgender status.
