Deadline LA Poetry Beach Festival 2022

Till September 1st poets from all over the world can submit in English their ‘Some People Never Go Crazy’ poem for the 2nd LA Poetry Beach Festival.

2nd LA Poetry Beach Festival
On Sunday, September 25th from 1 - 6.42 pm the 2nd LA Poetry Beach Festival 2022 will take place right in front of the Venice Beach Poet's Monument (1530 Ocean Front Walk, Los Angeles). At this event selected poets will read their work and poetry fans can visit lectures, workshops and talk shows.

Some People Never Go Crazy
Each year the LA Poetry Beach Festival comes up with a new theme; this year it is ‘Some people never go crazy’, a Charles Bukowski quote. To get selected for the 2nd LA Poetry Beach Festival poets have to submit a ‘Some People Never Go Crazy’ poem before September 1st.

Bukowkski
The organization chose this Bukowski quote as the theme of the 2022 festival to commemorate ‘100 years Bukowski in the US’. Charles Bukowski moved in 1922, as a 2 year old boy, with his American father and German mother from Adernach, Germany to Los Angeles, US.

Poems, length
Due to the limited availability of space in the poetry anthology that will be published, poems have a maximum length of 28 lines, including the blank lines.

Jury and criteria
In this year’s jury are P. Segal, Director at The San Francisco Art House Project, and Erik van Loon, Founder of LA Poetry Beach Festival. The jury has set the following criteria for the assessment of the poems and will assign 1 to 3 points to each of the criteria: theme, emotion, audience, personality and technique.

Registration fee $ 10,-.

Price: $10.00. ($ 10 to register your work)
