The Syracuse Poster Project invites Central New York poets to submit haiku poems for the 2011 poster series, the 10th annual series. Each year the Project brings together artists from Syracuse University and poets from the community to create a series of 16 posters for the poster panels of downtown Syracuse. Each poster features an illustrated poem about downtown Syracuse, the city, or surrounding countryside.
For entry materials, guidelines on writing haiku, and posters from current and past series, see the website: posterproject.com. Or call Jim Emmons, project coordinator, at 424-8099.
The submission deadline is Sept. 10. The project announces the selected poets and artists in December and releases the poster series in April.
