Science Made Marvellous - Poetry Competition

The Poets Union and the ACT Writers Centre invites submissions of poems to Science Made Marvellous, a collaborative national poetry and science project involving State, Territory and regional poetry and writing organisations for National Science Week in 2010.

Poets are asked to submit poems that take up science matters in the fields of Engineering, Chemistry, Biology, Mathematics, Physics, scientific discoveries, scientists or any other scientific thing you can think of. Submit up to five poems, as either text or as audio for consideration for an anthology of four chap books and an audio program.

The poems selected will be available both as a book and as downloadable PDF and audio file from the Poets Union, APC and partners’ websites. Successful submissions will be notified in mid July. The selected poems will be launched at a series of events coordinated in each state and territory in National Science Week, 14-22 August.
 The competition closes 30 June.
