Thank you for listening and for sharing!

Thanks to all who contributed to the upcoming listening-themed anthology! 


This free, digital anthology will be published in 2023. I'll share more details in the new year. 

Please see below for other opportunities to share your listening-themed arts.

Enter for a chance to share your listening-themed poetry with the National Federation of State Poetry Societies and to be published in Encore: Prize Poems, NFSPS's annual anthology of award-winning poetry. . 


In 2022, I sponsored The Listening Poem Award as a new category in the National Federation of State Poetry Societies (NFSPS) annual awards. I'm excited to share that the first-place and second-place winners have given permission for their stunning poems to be included in the upcoming listening-themed anthology that has been listed on this website (coming soon in 2023)!

I'm thankful for this opportunity to offer a Listening Poem award through NFSPS and will continue to sponsor this category.

Looking for another place to share your poetry with a warm, wonderful listening community?


The International Day of Listening (ILD) is an annual event, sponsored by the International Listening Association, and celebrated on the third Thursday of September. The IDL website invites recordings of "listening moments" for the website, which can be recorded and shared any time. 

Do you have poetry to share as a listening moment? Or music? Or sounds of nature? What does a listening moment mean for you? What listening moments would you like to share with the world? Consider recording your poem or other listening moment and sharing on the Listening Moments page!
