Poet, Show It! Submission Page

I love to read awesome poems, and celebrate amazing poets of all ages! If you’d like to see your original poem featured on an episode of Poet, Show It! – you’re in the right place!

File Upload and Poem Submission Guidelines:

The form below asks for poems to be submitted via file upload. This form will accept text documents, pdf’s , but the preferred method is a picture of the original written poem, as opposed to text. This is so everyone gets to see the amazing handwritten work, the poem’s shape, and any accompanying art that the poet may have drawn.

The submission form works on a mobile device which is often the easiest way to capture and upload the picture/s (up to three).

While capturing the image, please do your best to follow the below guidelines. It will help me make sure that I can share the poem and that everyone’s poem looks amazing!

Please Do

  • Take the picture from directly above, like you are scanning a document.
  • Make sure the image is well lit.
  • Check the image to make sure the poem is readable in the picture.
  • Upload multiple images (up to three) to get all the pages of the poem, or any original art that might accompany it.

Please Do Not

  • Please do not include the poet (or other people) in the picture.
  • Please do not hold the poem up or take the picture at a significant angle.
  • Please do not submit images of any work that is not completely original (No favorite toys or a collage of magazine photos as accompanying art).

The Submission Form

The Poem

(I know that Emily Dickinson didn't title her poems, but it will make it so much easier for everyone!)
Click or drag files to this area to upload. You can upload up to 3 files.
Please upload a photo or scan of the poem and any original art made to accompany it. Check out the tips above to make sure the poem looks great! **You may need to double tap on mobile**

About The Poet

This is the poet's real name, for reference, contact, and information only, and will not be disclosed. The only name that will be shared on an episode or video call will be the pseudonym. (See below.)
This is the name I will use when I share and talk about your poem! You can use your first name or a nickname that you like (or anything you want, really)
Names are sometimes tricky and I want to make sure I'm speaking about the poet in a way they appreciate!
Not required, but this way the poet's classmates definitely know who wrote it.
Not required, but it's always nice to give a shout out to the teacher!

Important Submission Information

For contact and release purposes, who is helping the poet submit their work today?
This way I can contact you if there are any issues with the submission, or let you know when the poem is being featured!
My goal is to celebrate awesome poets of all ages everywhere! I will always credit the original author / artist (using the pseudonym above) - and will aim to give you a heads up if/when your submitted poems get shared with the world!
My short, text email includes a weekly poetry prompt for the poets in your life, and a link to the newest episode of Poet, Show It!
