The Gay Head Lighthouse Committee wants you to join in to help save the lighthouse and the committee is getting creative. Or rather, the time is for you to get creative and be a part of the lighthouse poetry project.

The idea is straightforward — write a poem about the Gay Head Lighthouse. Stroll your memories for moments spent with the lighthouse. Go back in time or stay with the precarious present moment when erosion threatens the future of the light.

All submissions will be displayed on the Save the Lighthouse website and Facebook page. Selected poems will be published in a limited edition, letter-press, hand-bound anthology and all sales from this book will benefit the Town of Aquinnah’s Gay Head Lighthouse Fund.

There is a limit of up to three poems per person of any style or length (prose poems accepted). The deadline is January 1, 2014. All winning submissions will be notified by email in February 2014.

Email submissions are preferred but hard copies may be sent to Town of Aquinnah Lighthouse Poetry Project, 65 State Rd., Aquinnah, MA 02535
