Indiana Art Commission Now Accepting Poetry Entries to INverse

(UNDATED) – The Indiana Arts Commission, in partnership with the Indiana State Library, has announced that Indiana’s poetry archive, INverse, is now accepting entries.

Now in its second year, INverse, an initiative of former Indiana Poet Laureate Adrian Matejka, celebrates and preserves a diverse range of Indiana poetry for future generations of Indiana writers and readers. The works of 32 poets were added to the poetry archive in October of 2020.

“An archive is a valuable tool to collect a legacy of creative expression and embodies the perspectives, voices and passions of our people. We are pleased to have the INverse poetry archive in Indiana.” said Lewis Ricci, executive director of the Indiana Arts Commission.

All creative residents of Indiana are encouraged to submit poems to the archive online for review.
