Seeking poems.
  An Announcement from the Alaska Center for the Book: Poems in Place, a unique collaboration between Alaska Center for the Book, Alaska State Parks, a steering committee of poets and writers and residents of Alaska, will place a poem written by an Alaskan writer in each of the seven regions of the Alaska State Park’s system. This year’s Poems in Place will complete our goal to widely seed poetry in Alaska’s state parks.

From February 1 to April 1, 2015, Poems in Place will be accepting poems, both original work, as well as nominated poems written by Alaskan writers and submitted by appreciative readers, for Fort Abercrombie State Historical Park, Kodiak, and Caines Head Recreation Area, Seward.  No submission fees. An honorarium will be paid to the winning poets.
