Unleashing Satellites: Long Island Undergraduate Poetry
Continuing with the tradition started by Ed Stever (Poet Laureate of Suffolk County from 2011-2013) Unleashing Satellites poetry anthology and contest is taking submissions for the second year in a row. More than that, submissions are now open to Nassau County Students as well as Suffolk County Students!

Aiming to close the gap between student/college publications and professional publications, the contest and the anthology seek to encourage the continued effort and creativity of young aspiring poets while also introducing them to the larger poetry community.
