10t February 2020


Dial-a-Poem celebrates 50 years since John Giorno’s public art project launched in New York City. Giorno’s Dial-a-Poem connected callers to answering machines playing recordings by poets such as Allen Ginsberg, John Cage and Patti Smith. 2020 will see the service re-wired across several platforms. Winning poems will be published and recorded for the Dial-A-Poem app, a renovated K8 phone kiosk in the City of Nottingham and project website. The app will launch at The Science Museum in 2020.

The competition invites students enrolled at a UK institute of higher or further education to enter a poem on the theme of calling. This brief may be interpreted freely – poems can be directly or indirectly ‘telephonic’.

Prizes are awarded in National Book Tokens. First prize is £500, second prize is £300 and third prize is £200. An additional prize of £100 National Book Token will be awarded to a student currently enrolled at Nottingham Trent University.

Poems for Occasions

Presented by Angela Poetry Magazine and Wax Poetry and Art.

The general public often engages with poetry during occasions such as holidays and important life events. Poems for Occasions will create a free online resource that will allow people to find poems about occasions when they most want to read them. This project also intends to generate royalties for poets and help increase overall poetry readership, worldwide.

Submissions are open during January, March, May, July, September, and November. If the occasion is a holiday, submissions are also accepted within 15 days before and after the holiday. Submissions are open to everyone on Earth. No initial payment.

This publication is based in Canada.
