ANNUAL STATE ANTHOLOGY

Each spring Missouri State Poetry Society publishes an anthology of the poems of our members.  A member is entitled to have one page in the anthology for his or her poem (or poems, if they are short).  The anthology is called Grist and features on its cover one of Missouri's old grist mills.

Every member is encouraged to submit a poem that is 37 or fewer lines in length (including spaces between stanzas), which leaves room on the page for the poet's name, the poem's title, and the MSPS chapter the poet belongs to.  Lines should be no longer than 55 characters.

Please include your name, town of residence, and MSPS chapter you belong to with your poem OR put Member-at-Large if you are a member-at-large.  

DEADLINE:  Send poems from March 1 to June 1, 2016. 

Poems should be led to inafieldofdaisies@hotmail.com or mailed U.S. Postal Service to
