Call for Poetry Submissions

Posted on: February 7th, 2017 by Carolyn West

The Thank You Darlin’ Foundation is currently accepting submissions for its new Voice2Youth anthology, a book which will illuminate the talented voices of 3rd – 12th grade students throughout Texas.  The theme for this year is Poetry, Science, and Energy.

There is no charge for submission.  A poem that is submitted must be the entrant’s original work.  Students whose poetry and artwork is selected for publishing will be recognized during National Poetry Month in April.  They’ll also get a chance to perform their poem at our region-wide Voice2Youth Poetry Slam at the Fort Worth Botanic Gardens on Saturday, April 29th.   In addition, recognition will be given to all participating schools, teachers and coaches.  

A copy of the anthology guidelines can be found on our web site at

Submission deadline:  February 20, 2017
