Submission deadline: February 12, 2018
What makes a person a woman? And what makes a woman dangerous? And a danger to whom or what exactly? For our March reading we invite your poems, stories and non-fiction that explore the past, present and future of dangerous women. These might be historical or contemporary public figures, yourself or someone you know, or a creation entirely your own. We particularly encourage and welcome voices situated from or exploring the boundaries of “womanhood” in our culture.
Please send 4 – 6 poems or a short prose piece (one that can be read out loud in about 7-10 minutes) on the theme ALONG WITH a 50 to 75-word bio, IN THE BODY OF AN E-MAIL to firstname.lastname@example.org by February 5, 2018. We will make every effort to inform those chosen of our decision by February 12,. 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.
Members of ALL are encouraged to submit. Selections will be made with an eye to assembling a program that represents a diversity of poets, styles, and approaches to the theme. Please note that we prioritize submissions from readers who have not given a reading recently at ALL.
Selected poets and writers MUST be available to read in person. The reading will take place at ALL, 2021 Winnebago St in Madison on March 17, 2018 at 7 PM.
