SAVOR THE RISING WORDS: A Poetry Broadside Invitational

In honor of National Poetry Month, April 2016

Sponsored by: 49 Writers & Great Harvest Bread Co. Anchorage

Invitation

Members of 49 Writers and past or present participants in 49 Writers workshops are invited to submit poetry broadsides for display at Great Harvest Bread Co. throughout the month of April 2015 in honor of National Poetry Month. Featured poets will be encouraged to read their works during a public event at the bakery at a date and time to be determined. Broadsides in the exhibit will be available for sale and proceeds will be donated to 49 Writers; those not sold will be retained by 49 Writers for future displays or events.

Details: Broadly defined, a poetry broadside combines the words of a poem with visual imagery. Though often printed on a letterpress or in other printmaking media, for purposes of this exhibit we will include any presentation that combines original poetry and original artwork (including photos) on thick paper (at least card stock weight) no greater than 14” x 18” in size. Collaborative poet/artist pieces and collage pieces are welcome as long as they do not exceed the size limit.

Deadline: Friday, March 28, 2016. Submissions should be well wrapped in an envelope or paper and mailed or delivered by this date to the following address:

SAVOR THE RISING WORDS
