Welcome to the Marin Poetry Center Submittable page!

We offer two opportunities: the High School Anthology, for students in grades 9-12, and the Members' Anthology, for current MPC members. A little bit about each:

Members' Anthology

Open to any current member of Marin Poetry Center. To renew your membership or to join for the first time, please visit our website: https://marinpoetrycenter.org/join-us/ This year's anthology will work with (or against!) the idea of “Con/form.” Please read all guidelines prior to submission.

Submission Period: May 1, 2023-June 30, 2023
Editor: Linda Michel-Cassidy
Associate Editor: Kelly Alsup

High School Anthology

The contest is open to any high school student (grades 9-12) residing in the San Francisco Bay Area (not limited to Marin County). We are working hard to reach underrepresented students whose writing has not been included in past contests or anthologies. Please read all guidelines prior to submission.

Submission Period: Submissions to the 2023 High School Anthology are now closed. Check back in November for guidelines on the 2024 anthology. 

 This year’s member anthology will work with (or against!) the idea of “Con/form.”

 Think of triple-threat meanings: of conform, with form, and against form. Write formal poetry or confront it. Consider breaking form, working against form, what it means to work within or without form. A world of opportunities open using established forms—and further possibilities are offered by creating new ones.

Please submit up to three poems in a single document. Previously published poems are acceptable. If doing so, please include publication info. Please include a short 3rd-person bio.
