Poets in Pajamas: Call for Readers

Screen Shot 2018-10-17 at 3.45.05 PM

Poets in Pajamas (PiP), a Sundress Publications reading series is putting together the slate of readers for 2019 and would like to invite you to apply to read.

Poets in Pajamas is a live-feed online reading series which prides itself on producing high-quality poetry readings for an online audience which is hosted by Sundress Publications. Poets read from their own work for fifteen minutes and then field questions for an additional ten or fifteen.

We are interested in hearing from ALL writers (we accept both poetry and prose readers) but we also particularly want to welcome writers who identify as being a part of marginalized communities (such as but not limited to people of color, immigrant populations, native and indigenous people, LGBTQ+, d/Deaf and Disabled, non-binary people, members of non-dominant religious groups, all women, Dreamers, formerly incarcerated, and more). We want to host you and promote your work.

To apply send three poems or up to five pages of prose and a short video clip of you reading for no more than 1 to 3 minutes (less is more), and please also attach a bio and author photo in one email to poetsinpajamas@gmail.com. Submissions close December 1.

Note: We are NOT concerned with audio/video quality here, nor your appearance—don’t stress, just use your phone and show us that you have a good audio/video presence, a good sense of audience. We are NOT judging you based on your weight or what you’re wearing or whether you did your hair. We are looking for that magical combination wherein the poet writes wonderful words we want to hear AND is willing to engage with a camera and knows how to give a good reading. Really, one to three minutes, read as you would at any reading, one poem, or one paragraph, don’t overthink. Please apply!

Have you ever considered how many people either really miss getting out to readings because they don’t live near a literary city/don’t have time/can’t get to them? These are the people who will rarely be at your readings but want to see you read, want to know your work better, and want to love you. PiP would like to help you and they find one another.
