CALL FOR POETRY:Submissions for Woman Made Gallery Literary Series Event Date: Sunday, June 3 from 1:30 – 3:30 p.m. Location: 685 N Milwaukee Avenue, Chicago IL

Theme: Consumer Culture

In tandem with the concurrent art exhibit, poems might consider consumer culture “as it relates to natural or environmental resource issues, the financial and cultural impact of consumption, body/social image.” Additional topics could include (but need not be limited to) the following:

Mass production, marketing and selling of consumer goods Desire, status, competition, impulse, addiction Credit & debt Fashion & trend-setting Big-box vs. mom-and-pop and other economies of scale Economies dependent on waste and planned obsolescence

Selected poets must be available to read in person. Please send five poems on the theme ALONG WITH a 50 to 75 word bio* IN THE BODY OF AN E-MAIL to:<gallery(at)womanmade.org> (replace (at) with @ in sending email) by April 21, 2012. We will make every effort to inform those chosen of our decision by May 4, 2012.

Although we can't afford to pay readers, this is a great opportunity to sell books, read with other talented people and, since we've developed a partnership for the gallery with WBEZ's Chicago Amplified, to have your reading archived for future listening (a really great publicity feature).
