April: 30 Days of Inspiration, 2024

Poets and artists are invited to share original work with the community through a poem-a-day matched with an artwork-a-day for every day in April, in celebration of National Poetry Month and hosted by the Arts & Cultural Council of Bucks County.

Submissions accepted January 15—January 31, 2024 at 5 pm EST

April: 30 Days of Inspiration seeks poems and art that explore what strengthens, connects, revives or calms—from small, seemingly ordinary moments to dramatic occasions, broad landscapes, and abstractions. A different poem matched with a different artwork will be featured on ACCBC social media each day of April, 2024. Arts & Cultural Council of Bucks County will curate the exhibition.
