Community Poem Project
Art House Productions is accepting submissions for the Jersey City Community Poem Project. To celebrate National Poetry Month, Art House will create an original, digital, crowdsourced community poem. Jersey City’s Poet Laureate, Rashad Wright will curate the poem. The second phase of the project will include a video presentation of the poem. This project is sponsored by the City of Jersey City and Office of Cultural Affairs.
Submissions can be a haiku, free verse or a rhyming poem, whatever your creative energy tells you, but please cap your poems at 10 lines. Rashad will take lines and excerpts from some of your submissions and create a crowdsourced, community poem. Once the poem is created, Art House will publish it online, where contributors will be credited, and seek video submissions of community members performing the original work to be compiled in a video presentation.
The theme is "Life in the Pandemic and Beyond: Quarantine, Devastation, and Hope for the Future"
In order to participate, please fill out the submission form before Saturday, May 9 at 5:00pm EST.
Writers must be currently based in New Jersey.
Do you currently live in New Jersey?

Optional: Do you live in Jersey City?
Please include the text of your poem below. Submissions can be a haiku, free verse or a rhyming poem, whatever your creative energy tells you! Please do not include more than 10 lines.
