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.
DEADLINE: JUNE 30, 2013
