POETS, WRITERS, ARTISTS:

Cooper’s literary magazine, Roundelay, is now open for submissions! Our overarching theme for this year is People. We are looking for poetry, prose, and art centered around this theme. More specifically, we are looking for poetry about: heartbreak, love, childhood, coming of age and identity. We are looking for prose about: a significant event or experience in life, an important person in your life, childhood, identity, and self-awareness. For art we are looking for portraits, either photographed or drawn/painted/sketched. Only poems under 25 lines will be considered, prose should be limited to 300 words or less, and art can be in color or black and white.  We look forward to seeing your work! Work can be submitted to Mr. LaMere in room 234.
