YYC POP: Portraits of People
YYC POP: Portraits of People is an open call to the community, the entire city and the world, from Sheri-D Wilson, YYC’s Poet Laureate.
We invite you to write a portrait – in the form of a poem, prose poem, or snapshot / flash fiction – about someone you know who lives and works in Calgary or a historical figure whose contribution or story remains relevant today. This Legacy Project explores: Who are we? What is our identity as a city? Who are the people that live here? And what are their stories?
YYC POP will be curated by a jury of professional writers, and selected portraits will be included in a hard copy anthology being published by Frontenac House next year. You don’t have to be a writer to submit, and YYC POP is open to everyone living in Calgary, the greater Calgary area and ex-pats!
For full details and to submit your portrait please visit https://sheridwilson.com. Deadline to submit is November 30, 2019.
