North Carolina Poetry Society
The North Carolina Poetry Society announces the seventh year of the Gilbert–Chappell Distinguished Poet Series (GCDPS). In this series, poets in middle school, high school and college as well as adults are invited to apply to be mentored by a Distinguished Poet (DP) in eastern, central or western North Carolina. Three DPs will mentor four student poets each. GCDPS student poets will work with DPs for four to six months on a dozen pages of their original poetry and then read at a regional college or university with other student poets and their mentor in April 2010.
Deadline: November 1
