POETS IN HARMONY – Exhibition Submissions Open


Help WA Poets Inc. celebrate Harmony Week at the City of Belmont’s annual Harmony Day Concert on Sunday, 19 March from 3pm to 6pm at Tomato Lake, Kewdale.

The free, family friendly outdoor concert is a celebration of the City’s cultural diversity, unique heritage and acknowledges local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ contribution to the community.


All poets (you do not have to be a WAPI member to submit to this event) are invited to write poems on the theme of Harmony. This could be their personal experience with Immigration and settling in Australia, what it means to be an Australian, about reconciliation, harmony, and similar. The chosen poems will be exhibited at the WAPI marquee.

Please email your poem/s (a maximum of 3 per poet) to wapoets@gmail.com as separate MS word attachments with Harmony Poem as the subject. To be eligible, poems must be

  • less than one A4 page in length and family friendly
  • written using 14 point Times New Roman text and 1.5 line spacing with 2.54 cm margins
  • each poem to include a title and the poet’s name at the end of the poem.
  • appropriate black and white designs can be included as part of your poem.

Poets who have their poem/s chosen for the exhibition will be contacted by email. No other correspondence will be entered into.

Poems must be received BEFORE the deadline, midnight, Sunday 5th March. Late submissions will not be considered.
