Contemporary, original poetry
The Poetry Shorts Project was created in 2015 by actor and poet, Emilie Rommel Shimkus and is a production of The Northwest Renaissance, a non-profit organization committed to supporting and celebrating poetry in the Puget Sound region. Learn more!
Our inaugural production, TELL YOUR CHILDREN was completed in early 2017 and is now in festival submissions before it will be released. In the meantime, please peruse the site to see who we are and peek at all the progress with our first poetry short project.
Bringing poetry to life on film
We are still raising some funds for TELL YOUR CHILDREN that will assist with festival submission fees and publicity. If you are moved to contribute, we thank you! Every small amount really does add up!
TELL YOUR CHILDREN is produced by THE NORTHWEST RENAISSANCE, a non-profit (501c3) literary organization. All contributions made to this project are tax-deductible.
