Call for Poetry Readings: Woman Made Gallery Literary Series

Call for Poetry: Woman Made Gallery Literary Series

Theme: Wild Cuts: Collage and Beyond
Date: Sunday, August 13, 2017/ 1:00 – 3:30 p.m.
Place: 685 N Milwaukee Ave, Chicago IL

Collage has appeared in wildly distinct forms across all the major art and culture movements of the 20th and 21st century. This reading is open to femme writers of all genders. The poems we're looking for range from centos to hybrids, cut-ups and re-mixes, chance operations and cross disciplinary work. And beyond. Send us your best.

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:

poetryATwomanmadeDOTorg (Change AT to @ and DOT to .)

Submissions must be received by July 11, 12:01 a.m. We will make every effort to inform those chosen of our decision by July 17. 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.

If you know of someone whose work might fit here, please spread the word!
