Poetry Deadlines for Split This Rock Poetry Festival


Read, Write, Resist! In Washington, D.C. in March 2008, the Split This Rock Poetry Festival will celebrate our great tradition of poetry of witness and resistance. The festival will feature readings, workshops, panel discussions on poetry and social change, youth programming, films, parties, walking tours, and activism—a unique opportunity to hone our activist skills while we assess and debate the public role of the poet and the poem in this time of crisis. As citizens and artists, our obligation has never been greater. We call on poets of conscience to move to the center of public life as we forge a visionary new arts movement for peace and justice.

There are 3 upcoming deadlines related to the festival: 1) A poetry contest with significant cash prizes 2) A call for panel proposals 3) A call for film and video submissions.

Please go to http://www.splitthisrock.org/ for more information and to REGISTER for the festival. It's going to rock!
