Poetry Critique Night

Please note: Because Poetry Critique Night is happening virtually, registration is required. Submissions from those registered must be received by Monday, June 14th. Celebrate Lexington Poetry Month (#LexPoMo) by receiving feedback on your poem from a panel of published poets including Christopher McCurry, Jude McPherson, and Misty Skaggs
Upon registration, please email one poem (12-point font; only one submission per person) to INFO@CarnegieCenterLex.org. Poems will be selected at random. A moderator will read your piece aloud so it remains anonymous. We will get through as many submissions as possible. 
Space is limited. Even if we don’t read your poem, you will still benefit from listening to the feedback on others’ poems. This event is modeled after our popular Prose Writing Critique Nights. 
To participate in Poetry Critique Night:

2) Submit one poem to INFO@CarnegieCenterLex.org. Specifications are listed above.
