Poetry in the High Schools

The Marin Poetry Center’s High School Poetry Program goal is to excite students about poetry. We do this by sponsoring teen-related projects that celebrate the arts and through our High School Poetry Contest culminating in the publication of a High School Poetry Anthology and a gala Award Ceremony.

The submission period for the 2018 High School Poetry Contest is Nov 13, 2017 to Feb 16, 2018.
