Poetry Submissions – Guidelines

Poetry submissions have been part of the American Diversity Report since it’s inception in 2006.  And dozens of poems from around the world provide windows into different cultures. Illuminating cultural diversity is the ADR mission and poetry is a big part of that mission.

Beginning in the fall 2019, John C. Mannone will be the ADR Poetry Editor. He will choose 2 poems each month to be published and included in that month’s e-newsletter. If you would like to join us, here are guidelines for poetry submissions:
