Next regular meeting
of Florence Poets Society

April 13, 2017

6:30-7:00 business meeting
& sharing poems from 7 to 9
Lilly Library, Florence, Massachusetts


Silkworm is open for submissions!

You are invited to submit your poems 
to be considered for Silkworm 10 (our 10th anniversary issue!), 
to be published in fall 2017.

Please submit up to 3 poems of no longer than 50 lines each and include a 30-word bio with your submission. The deadline for submissions is April 15, 2017. Only electronic submissions will be accepted, as an MS Word document attached in an email sent to No submission fee.

Simultaneous submissions are acceptable so long as you inform us right away if your poem is accepted elsewhere. We claim first American publication rights, with rights reverting to the author after the initial publication period; please give us credit in future publications. 

We prefer work that has not been previously published.

Members and non-members of Florence Poets Society are encouraged to submit. International submissions are encouraged, subject to a small fee for accepted poems to cover the cost of shipping the contributor's copy.

We look forward to reading your poems!
