Visual Poetry Call For Submissions

After the success of last year’s “See This, Hear Me: Visual Poetry” exhibit at the 2010 Edmonton Poetry Festival, we couldn’t resist doing it all over again. 

The theme of this year’s exhibit is “Sound and Vision”, focusing on the synesthetic interplay of sight and sound in our understanding of language and the contemporary world. 

We are currently seeking works of Visual Poetry, Concrete Poetry, Haiga, and visually-appealing Sound Texts that represents the auditory landscape visually.

The week-long exhibit will kick-off with an explosive evening of Sound Poetry concerned with evoking the Image.

We plan to hold a silent auction.  All pieces will be printed by the curator at highest quality and displayed unframed.  The average print size will be a standard 8.5” X 11” page. 
If your piece(s) is/are chosen, you are entitled to the entire sale! 
By submitting, you agree to have your work included in the silent auction.

Please send 1 to 3 high quality images (JPEG format with 300 dpi recommended) to 
We are trying to ensure a large survey of work/styles, so if your submission is a sequential piece or large in scale, please indicate if you object to the selection of an isolated panel or detail. 
Sequential work may be considered. In your email, please clearly indicate the title of your piece(s) and name as you would like it to appear.

The deadline is Feb. 28, 2011 at 11:30 pm.

This call is open to Canadian poets/artists only.
