Global Village Contest details

For this contest we are looking for poetic ideas and philosophies that express how the combination of our communities is creating a global village.

Travel, gadgets, communication devises, people, economies, weather, terror, let us know what creates a global village, what maintains it, why it is important, anything that gets your ideas across about this topic.

Global village is a term coined by Marshall McLuhan who envisioned the world interconnected via electronic communications. The world is perceived as shrunk to the size of a village, both because of mass communication and also in relation to the way in which changes in one area are likely to affect the rest of the world. The natural disasters as of late are a good example of how what affects one part of the world, affects us all.

Submit your poem (see complete guidelines), any length, and the winner will be selected to appear in the next edition of Poetry Canada Magazine.

There are no fees - winner will receive a free copy of the magazine.

Deadlines are: Feb 15th and May 15th, 2006

Email your poem, and put "Global Village contest" in the subject line. We will send a confirmation email upon receipt.
