In celebration of National Poetry Month, and in conjunction with Poetry Cafe and the soon-to-be-released Poetry Coffee Range, Julius Meinl North America is announcing an open call for original poetry submissions.
We are also presenting our first ever Meinl Poetry Night, an evening of poetry, coffee, and small plates by Executive Chef Erica Fischer (Red Light, Opera) and petit fours by Executive Pastry Chef Rochelle DuBridge (Hot Chocolate, Vie). The best part? Chefs Erica and Rochelle will create a menu inspired by the winning poems you submit.
Imagine your own prose interpreted by a chef. This is a poetry contest unlike any other.
Winning submissions will also have their poems displayed at Meinl Poetry Night, and will receive a pair of complimentary seats to the dinner in addition to the Poetry Coffee Range.

Mary Oliver’s poems are masterful cnaiteors that resonate in my mind and heart each time I read them. Her language is soulful; her imagery brillant. She is a master craftsman who builds each poem precisely. Her poems talk of so many things in the natural world; she distills each to its barest essence and allows us the enjoyment of sharing it; I always feel as though she invites me to come along to discover these sacred sights and insights found in nature.The poems in this collection explore and reveal the essence of fireflies, moss, the stars, the toad, the owl, Daisies, beans, the cricket, the Black Bear, the seasons, Blackwater (a place), the Soul and many other creatures and their habitats. She is a sublime poet of the natural world and this collection is superb!I recommend it to anyone!
