Call for Panel Discussion and Workshop Proposals: Split This Rock Poetry Festival

Call for Proposals – Split This Rock Poetry Festival: Poems of Provocation & Witness 2014

Split This Rock invites proposals for panel and roundtable discussions, workshops, and themed group readings for our fourth national poetry festival, scheduled for March 27-30, 2014, in Washington, DC.

Adrienne Rich, who died just a few days after the last Split This Rock Poetry Festival, wrote: When poetry lays its hand on our shoulder… we are to an almost physical degree, touched and moved. The imagination’s roads open before us, giving the lie to that slammed and bolted door, that razor-wired fence, that brute dictum “There is no alternative.” With our world crying out for alternatives, and in honor of Adrienne Rich, we welcome proposals that help us travel the imagination’s roads.

Details and guidelines.
