DUBLIN, CA–The City of Dublin and Viewless Wings, led by Dublin Poet Laureate James Morehead, are collaborating on the City of Dublin’s second annual Poetry Walk during National Poetry Month (April 1-30). Modeled after a similar event in Rutland, VT, Dublin’s Poetry Walk will feature poetry submitted by local and national poets displayed in local business storefronts. Residents and visitors will be able to download, or access online, a Poetry Walk Passport with a map to visit all participating businesses.
Last year, 25 local businesses across Dublin featured poems by 26 poets. Submissions are now open for poets and local businesses that interested in participating:
- City of Dublin businesses interested in participating can apply here.
- Poets are invited to submit their original work via Submittable (details here).
Viewless Wings will provide selected businesses with a high quality poster of a selected poem for display in their storefront. All poems will be curated for quality and suitability for public display. Viewless Wings and the City of Dublin will be creating awareness of the event through social media and other channels. Dublin residents and visitors will be able to download a Poetry Walk Passport (or access online) with a map of participating businesses and selected poets. Selected poets will also have the opportunity to be featured on ViewlessWings.com and the Viewless Wings Poetry Podcast.
