It's Time for the 2018 Altadena Poetry Review!

Poetry is alive and well in Altadena! We celebrate the talents of the creative writers in our community, and we are fortunate to have a committed team in our midst that spearheads the annual Altadena Poetry Review. Starting next week and extending until late October, poets from across Southern California are invited to submit their best work for consideration to be included in this annual, published anthology.

CLICK HERE to review the detailed submission guidelines!

The 2017 Altadena Poetry Review Anthology is available for purchase at the Altadena Library. Stop by and take a peek at the pieces featured in last year's publication!
