The Common Language Project Submissions are now open

Writer's Garret

Born of a desire to bring the many members of the North Texas poetry community into conversation with each other, The Common Language Project places participants in the same room and turns them loose to dream. United by a list of shared words and confined only by the space of a page, the poems of the project weave a tapestry of radically divergent experiences that sing, simmer and singe. Together, these poems give us a place to come together, somewhere from which we can start, from which we can thrive.
Submission is open to poets in the North Texas area. Thirty winners will be selected for publication in an online anthology. Ten winners from that group will be invited to give a public reading of their winning poems in the last week of April.
