Visit our Submission Guidelines and Submissions FAQ pages on our website to learn everything you need to know about submitting and to find a link to the submission form.

We care about introducing our audiences to poets they may not be familiar with and offering poets the opportunity to reach a wider audience.

One of the many ways we find Festival Poets is through open submissions. 

  • A complete submission includes audio or video recordings, a work sample and responses to some questions about you and your work.
  • We are collecting submissions through a Submittable form, linked on our website. 
  • There is no fee for submitting. 
  • Every submission received by October 15, 2021 will be reviewed by all three poets on our anonymous panel.

Please share this information with anyone that you think might be interested in submitting to read at the next Dodge Poetry Festival, happening fall 2022!
