April: 30 Days of Inspiration, 2023

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 will be accepted January 15-January 31, 2023

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, 2023. Arts & Cultural Council of Bucks County will curate the exhibition.
