Submissions sought from young poets
To showcase the work of young local poets, we are asking for southeastern Connecticut residents 25 and under to submit video recordings of themselves reading their own original poetry.
We hope you were as inspired as we were by 22-year-old Youth Poet Laureate Amanda Gorman's show-stopping recitation of her poem "The Hill We Climb" at Wednesday's inauguration of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris. To help us all maintain the momentum of this promising moment, and showcase the work of young local poets, we are asking for poets 25 and under to produce a 30-second video of themselves reciting their own poem of hope. We will feature some of the poetry in our Daybreak section, online and in print. To submit, please send us a short clip of you reciting your poem in one of the following ways:
Send us a YouTube, Twitter, Instagram or Facebook video link of your performance.
Send us a voice memo recorded on your smartphone.
Email us at email@example.com.
