Aurora Cultural Arts District wants you for [email protected] 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 [email protected] 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.

Does that sound like you? To learn more or to reserve a spot (it's suggested you limit readings to five minutes long) or enter an artwork, visit [email protected] online and fill out an entry form.
