I’m running the Poetry Prowl again this year, but will be opening it up so that anyone in the community who wants to read in it will be able to! I would love to have any interested members from Writer’s Ink come out and read at the event! Another feature I’m adding this year is a table for people to sell books at and your 2012 chapbook, and any other books of yours that you’d like to sell would be very welcome!
Here is the official call for poets:
“Calling All Poets!
The Poetry Prowl is back for its second year and is looking for poets to read their work aloud! Hosted by the Red Deer College Poetry Society and the Red Deer Arts Council, the Poetry Prowl is a roving poetry festival. Both our performers and audience members tour through downtown Red Deer stopping at venues along the way to listen to our poets perform.
The Poetry Prowl welcomes writers of all levels of experience. If you would like to participate please email a portfolio of your poetry, no longer than five pages, to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your name and contact information with your submission. Portfolios will be used to group poets together for our venues, and will not be returned. We will also offer a table for poets to sell their books or CDs; self-published work welcome!
The event will be held in the afternoon on April 14th, 2012.
The deadline for portfolio submissions is March 31st.
For information contact Emily Ursuliak at: email@example.com”
All the best!
