The Blue Sage Literary Committee is seeking original works of poetry, fiction, prose, and non-fiction for presentation at Harvest of Voices, the kickoff event of Mountain Harvest Festival. Entries must be submitted via an online form by noon on Friday, August 9, 2024. All pieces are limited to 1,000 words and must be read by the writer on the evening of September 26, 2024. Please review the full submission requirements and access the online submission here. Contact the Blue Sage Center at 970-527-7243 for more information.

Literary works for Harvest of Voices are selected by a committee of judges who will anonymously score the entries. Judges are volunteers organized by the director of the Blue Sage Center for the Arts.

Please follow these steps to be considered for the 2024 Harvest of Voices:

  1. Open to writers from the Western Slope of Colorado only.
  2. Submit your original work by Friday, August 9, 2024, at noon.
  3. All pieces (fiction, non-fiction, essays, poetry, etc.) are limited to 1000 words each (the online submission form will not accept more than 1000 words).  
  4. All poems will be considered individually.  If you submit multiple poems, only those that are selected can be read at the event.
  5. To qualify, you must be able to read your selection the evening of Thursday, September 26, 2024. By submitting you are agreeing to be livestreamed and/or recorded.
  6. Work should not be too graphic, profane, or otherwise inappropriate for young audience members.
  7. We prefer unpublished work but will consider published work that has not been previously performed in Delta County.
  8. Submit each piece individually using the form starting July 1. Blue Sage and Paonia Library staff will be available through August 9 to assist you if you need help with the online form.

We look forward to receiving your submissions! Please email any questions to info@bluesage.org or call 970-527-7243.
