Visit any of the City of Sydney Libraries during August and September to find your poetic voice during the 40 Days of Poetry.
Find your poetic voice in the library
When: August 1st to September 9th
What: Each day, a poem and a writing exercise from our Poems to Share box set will be featured in each City of Sydney library branch. Library-goers are encouraged to respond to the exercise, and submit a poem to the Poetry Mailbox in the library, or via email. The best poems will be featured on the Stacks website, as well as having the opportunity to be published in the Sun-Herald.
This event is part of the Stacks project, which culminates in a screening of 'The Analogue Crusader', an animation about the sweet but sad life of a man who made his living selling poems.
Who: Participating libraries are: Ultimo, Customs House, Surry Hills, Waterloo, Glebe, Kings Cross, Newtown, Paddington and Haymarket
All library visitors and staff are welcome to submit their poems.

Submissions must be in the body of the email to be considered.If you do not hear back from us within 14 days then you can assume wewon't be usingyour work.
