Calling All Poets!

Gleeson Library wants your help celebrating National Poetry Month! We are currently accepting submissions for our 2nd annual Faculty & Staff poetry reading.  The reading will be on Thursday, April 29, 2010 from 5:30-7 pm in the Rare Book Room (3rd Floor) of Gleeson Library.

Last year’s NPM event was a success: we asked five of our favorite USF poets to read a selection of their work in the library, and they did…to a very good crowd.  This year we are looking to make the event even more diverse and inclusive so we are opening it up for submissions. If you are a USF Staff or Faculty member and are interested in participating, please email the selection committee ( the following information:

• Your name
• Your contact info
• A writing sample of 3-5 poems (max.10 pages) that represents what type of work you intend to read
• A little bit about yourself and what you do at USF

The deadline to submit is March 17, 2010.

Please understand the number of readers on the program will be limited and the selection committee is seeking a diverse representation of USF faculty and staff. We anticipate not being able to accept all applicants. Decisions of the selection committee are final.

Thank you! We look forward to reading your work.
