2021 Art on the Trails: Mending

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

The Call for Ekphrastic Poetry for the 2021 Art on the Trails outdoor exhibition is open. We invite artists to submit poetry in response to the art installations currently on view at Beals Preserve in Southborough. 

Guidelines for Submissions

Walk in the woods at Beals preserve this summer, and experience the art on exhibit there. Regular free guided tours are being offered at the Preserve. Please visit our website for dates and times: www.artonthetrails.com OR visit the Art on the Trails Instagram account  instagram.com/artonthetrails to view videos from each of the artists.  

Choose a piece of art that speaks to you, and respond to it in poetry. We welcome all forms of poetry, and poems of any length, although ideally, each poem will be no longer than one hundred lines.

Send us your work to be considered for publication in our 2021 chapbook to be published in September by Route 7 Press. Those selected for publication will also be invited to read their work on a live event at Beals Preserve on September 26th.

Please contact Maura Snell, poetry@artonthetrails.com, if you have questions.
