      The Poetry Center invites regional poets to submit their unpublished work for

      their poetry published in a chapbook by Dancing Girl Press as well as on the
      Poetry Center website, and all eight poets will be invited to read at an award
      ceremony at the Harold Washington Library Center at 3:30 pm on Saturday, April

      The Juried Reading is open to all poets residing in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa,
      Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio,
      South Dakota and Wisconsin. Poets may be unpublished or have published no
      more than one full-length book of poetry. All submissions are blind; the jury and
