Poets, please submit your poems in .doc, .docx, .rtf, or .pdf format.  If there is a great deal of formatting (indentations, spacing) .pdf is recommended.  Each poet may submit up to 4 poems.  We cannot guarantee that all poems will be selected.  However, if a poet has no poems selected, one will be chosen for an interactive wall where we will invite visitors to the gallery to create artwork inspired by the poems.  If the online form doesn’t work, please email your poems to

Artists, make sure you let me know by the deadline that you want to participate so that I can send you the poems to choose from.  You can email to sign up.  If you are not a Coast Collective member, please submit some samples of your artwork or a link to your website for our revision.
