If you enjoyed “Letters from Two Gardens,” Aimee Nezhukumatathil’s and Ross Gay’s poetry collaboration in Orion’s January/February issue, we’ve got a great opportunity for you.
To celebrate National Poetry Month in April (just a few days away!), we’re announcing the inaugural Orion Poetry Exchange, open to all readers and friends of Orion. The theme for 2014 is “The Growing Season.”
How does it work?
Whether you prefer to collaborate via snail mail or digitally
Orion will pair you up and introduce you and your Poetry Exchange partner via e-mail. Please note that by signing up to participate, you give Orion permission to share your e-mail address with another reader (we promise not to give it to anyone else).
If you’d like your work to be featured on Orion’s blog and Facebook page, please send us a physical or digital copy of the poems by April 30, and we’ll post them online. After that, you’re free to continue collaborating.
