Father’s Day Poetry

June 20, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

This event was shared by Dee O’Connor and is being listed by request.

The Poetorium will host a poetry reading honoring fathers on June 20th. Up to 20 poems will be selected and posted in a Father Day’s Poetry Anthology on the Poetorium’s website AND will be read by their authors on Zoom at 7:00 p.m. on Father’s Day.

We’re hoping to have a diverse representation of poets and poetry forms, so please pass this invitation on to anyone (especially in Worcester County) who may be interested. The group ode, along with up to 20 poems about fathers will be read on the 20th. Please submit one or both of the following by June 13th at the latest:

  • A poetry stanza inspired by the prompt “I remember my father …”
  • One original poem about a father/father figure (be sure to include where your poem has appeared if it was previously published)

You don’t need to submit an entry to participate in the virtual event, but registration in advance is required. To register, please send us an email with your name and email address (with “Father’s Day Poetry Project” in the subject heading) along with any submissions by June 13th to poetorium@mail.com. If you are submitting a contribution to the group ode and/or a poem, be sure to include a short bio.
