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.  Poems selected for inclusion in the show will be subject to the same $10 hanging fee as other works of art (unless they are submitted by a Coast Collective Associate Member), as we will need to print and frame and hang them.  There is no application fee.  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.  There is no adjudication fee, but there is a $10 hanging fee for any artwork included in the show (except for Coast Collective Associate Members).
