Call for Poetry Readings: Woman Made Gallery Literary Series

Call for Poetry: Woman Made Gallery Literary Series
Theme: Balance vs. Imbalance in a Changing World
Reading: Sunday, February 2, 2014 1:30 – 3:30 pm
Submission Deadline: December 22, 2014

Woman Made Gallery’s first art exhibit of the year is Equilibrium: Art for a Changing World. The exhibit seeks to explore the tensions, demands and challenges inherent in living in a rapidly changing world: from environment, population, politics to social and cultural trends.

The poetry reading in conjunction with this exhibit, will also explore Balance and Imbalance in the context of change. Do you take the idea of “maintaining equilibrium” to suggest achieving healthy balance OR maintaining the status quo? What might change look like? Writers are encouraged to interpret this theme broadly.

Selections will be made with an eye to assembling a program that represents a diversity of poets, styles, and approaches to the theme.

Selected poets MUST be available to read in person. Please send 4 – 6 poems on the theme ALONG WITH a 50 to 75 word bio, IN THE BODY OF AN E-MAIL to:

galleryATwomanmadeDOTorg (Change AT to @ and DOT to .)

by December 22, 11:59 p.m. We will make every effort to inform those chosen of our decision by December 30. Although we can't afford to pay readers, this is a great opportunity to sell books and read with other talented people in a very special environment.
