Aurora Cultural Arts District wants you for Poetry@Play in September
Know any poets? Got a thing yourself for putting words together in beautiful collages? There's a place for every poet at the Aurora Cultural Arts District's first-ever Poetry@Play weekend, where verses by featured poets and all comers will ring out both indoors and out in downtown Aurora on September 20 and 21.
ACAD is seeking poets -- all poets, from primed performers to Sunday versifiers -- to recite at any of three readings over two days: a Beat tribute on the evening of September 20 in Fletcher Plaza (submit your favorite Beat poem in advance for a spot) and two free-for-all open readings on the following night.
And there's more: Artists are invited to submit works inspired by poetry to be displayed at the ACAD Gallery and Studios and the Collection Gallery, both in Aurora, during the event.
