call for poetry for a public reading on "American Dream" theme
- CALL FOR POETRY: The American Dream: A Juxtaposition
Sunday, February 20, 2011 / 2-4 p.m.
A beautiful country with a history damning and redeeming in turns. A
nation where all have opportunity but one percent of the population
controls over a third of the wealth. A crucible of Enlightenment
democracy that accepted slavery. We ask writers to consider any and all
sides of the American dream, e.g. odes, persona pieces, rants, etc. and
submit the results.
Selected poets have to be available to read in person. Please send five
poems on the theme ALONG WITH a 50 to 75 word bio, IN THE BODY OF AN
E-MAIL to <gallery(at)womanmade.org> (replace (at) with @ in sending
e-mail) by January 10. We will make every effort to inform those chosen
of our decision by January 17, 2011.
