Malibu Poet Laureate Ann Buxie, with support from the Poet Laureate Committee and the Malibu Arts Commission, seeks poems from Malibu community members for Verse About Town. The program features poems in parks and facilities to inspire the community's voice, thoughts, and feelings. Submit an online application with poetry submission(s). Each poem must be the original work of the author.
Poetry will be displayed for 30 to 60 days. The City will notify authors if their poems are featured in Verse About Town 10 to 15 days before the display date. Poems will be selected based on various factors, including theme, emotion, meaning, type of poem, etc.
For those chosen as contributors, more than one poem may be selected for Verse About Town. Writers may contribute up to 5 poems for consideration on one application. Poems that are 50 lines or fewer are highly desirable.
