YYC POP: Portraits of People

YYC POP: Portraits of People is an OPEN CALL out to the community, the entire city and the world, from Sheri-D Wilson, YYCís Poet Laureate. We invite you to write a portrait - in the form of a poem, prose poem, or snapshot / flash fiction - about someone you know who lives and works in Calgary or a historical figure whose contribution or story remains relevant today. This Legacy Project explores: Who are we? What is our identity as a city? Who are the people that live here? And what are their stories? YYC POP will be curated by a jury of professional writers, and selected portraits will be included in a hard copy anthology being published by Frontenac House next year. You donít have to be a writer to submit, and YYC POP is open to everyone living in Calgary, the greater Calgary area, and ex-pats! For full details and to submit your portrait please visit https://sheridwilson.com. DEADLINE TO SUBMIT: NOVEMBER 30, 2019
