Gunpowder Press seeks Santa Barbara County poets for new book

Gunpowder Press invites poets from Santa Barbara County and adjacent counties to submit one to three poems inspired by photographs in the Santa Barbara Public Library’s Edson Smith Collection. The winning poems will be included in an upcoming anthology. Selected poets for publication will receive a free copy of the book. 

The Edson Smith Collection features nearly 1,500 photographs, dating from the 1870s to the 1940s, collected by Santa Barbara native and longtime resident Edson A. Smith (1877-1947). These photographs capture historic buildings, adobes, and other cultural landmarks throughout the county. 

Participants can access the photos online at Poetry submissions should be sent to by June 30.
