Fwd: call for poetry: Woman Made Gallery
- CALL FOR POETRY: And You Think That's Funny??
February 8, 2009 / 2-4 p.m / Co-Curators: Nina Corwin and Pamela Miller
Who says poetry has to be serious all the time--or even any of the
time? Or that poetry can't be serious and hilarious at the same time?
Woman Made Gallery is looking for writing by women that explores the
many ways humor can be used in poetry--e.g., humorous imagery, funny
subject matter, political and social satire, parodies of well-known
poems/poets, and poems that use humor to make serious statements (or
vice versa). All styles and themes will be considered, from the subtly
wry to the sidesplitting, that's rich, this woman is funny!
Please submit up to three original works by emailing
<gallery(at)womanmade.org> (replace (at) with @). Entry deadline is
January 10, 2009. Selected readers must be able to read in person at
Woman Made Gallery on February 8, 2009.
