Poetry Initiative for National Poetry Month 2021

Poetry Initiative for National Poetry Month 2021


Ouray County residents are invited to submit original poetry for an anthology of local literary writing that focuses on what life is like in our mountain region. The writing can be personal, but it should reflect in some way the places, people, lifestyle, or landscape of our county.


The poems that are selected will be included in an anthology slated to be published in Summer 2021.    Writers should email their entries as Word attachments by April 30, 2021 to Beth Paulson, Ouray County Poet Laureate, at The author’s name, address, and email address should be included, and multiple submissions are welcome.  Preference in selection will be given to writing that employs concrete imagery and fresh word choices.
