Spring Forward Poetry Call - Deadline: April 12 at 6 PM

Scarborough Arts’ 2016 spring exhibit kicks off during National Poetry Month. As such, we invite our members that are poets to submit works that reflect on the season.

Spring is the time that for centuries has given rise to poetic inspiration. In his seminal poem The Wasteland, T.S. Eliot famously declared April the “cruelest month”; George Elliott Clarke signalled that “spring’s resurrection [is]/foretold by the sharp fused fragrance of jubilee roses.” Scarborough Arts’ 2016 Spring Members Exhibit will incorporate poems about or inspired by the season and feature this work alongside our members’ selected visual artworks.

Selected poets can expect their work to be incorporated into the exhibition and will be celebrated at our inaugural SA Talks: Poetry Springs Forth event at the Bluffs Gallery. This evening will feature readings by some of the city’s and country’s most celebrated poets.

For more information, email or contact 416-698-7322.
