Chicago Poetry News: Click On Headlines .
Chicago State University will present "Builder of Positive Reality: A Celebration of the Lifelong Achievements of Dr. Haki R. Madhubuti & the 20th Anniversary of the Gwendolyn Brooks Center for Black Literature and Creative Writing." It will happen on April 1st thru April 3rd and it will feature Angela Jackson, JoAnne Gabbin, Trudier Harris, Maryemma Graham, R. Dwayne Betts, Randall Horton, Jericho Brown, John Murillo, Marcus Jackson, Tony Medina, John Fountain, Jabari Asim, Treasure Williams and many others, with "Giant’s Day Honoree" Nikki Giovanni. For information on registration please contact the Gwendolyn Brooks Center at 773-995-4440 or gbrookscenter@gmail.com.

If you click on this link you can scroll down the page and reserve a copy of Kathleen Kirk's new book, Living on the Earth, which is forthcoming from Finishing Line Press. Or you can send $15 to the press at P. O. Box 1626, Georgetown, KY 40324. It will be shipped to you on April 30.

If you click on this link you can see a ten minute preview of the new documentary "Louder Than A Bomb" made by Chicago filmmakers Greg Jacobs and Jon Siskel and starring Kevin Coval and some very talented young poets. On Saturday, February 20, from 6 to 9 PM, there will be a festival kickoff party with a special fine cut screening of the feature length film at Columbia College Film Row, 1104 S. Wabash, 8th Fl. Tickets for this fundraiser are $25 at the door.

Here's a cool opportunity that you should take advantage of. Caffeine Theatre seeks short original performance pieces of all kinds (music, dance, theatre, spoken word, poetry, etc.) for the Emily Dickinson Coffeehouse, March 2010. The Coffeehouse celebrates the work of American poet Emily Dickinson. Any and all pieces inspired by Dickinson’s life, work, or themes are welcome. Please email a 1-2 page proposal (or, if the written piece already exists, send that) to Artistic Director Jennifer Shook at jen@caffeinetheatre.com including (with understanding that transformation occurs in process) a description of your proposed piece, how many people you expect to be involved, estimated length, and any required resources. (Consideration will be given to minimal pieces with brief setup and small spatial needs.) Please use “Coffeehouse submission” in the subject heading. Some rehearsal space will be available on a first-come basis. Casting assistance is also available as required and appropriate. Out-of-Chicago artists are encouraged to send a script or music or poem to be performed by in-town artists. The Emily Dickinson Coffeehouse is produced in conjunction with Caffeine’s production of Wild Nights with Emily, a quirky queer comedy by Madeleine Olnek running at the Lincoln Square Arts Center March 5-April 1, 2010. SUBMISSION DEADLINE: February 18, 2010. Accepted pieces will be notified by February 25, 2010.

Caffeine also seeks original poetry for Dwelling in Possibility: Poetry to Take Your Head Off competition. Submissions may include any size or style of poem, as long as it is inspired in some way by Emily Dickinson’s life or work, or in some way speaks in conversation with that life or work. Winners will be posted and podcast on Caffeine’s website, and performed at the Emily Dickinson Coffeehouse in March. Any new or previously written poem may be submitted (provided it can be republished / recorded / performed). TO SUBMIT: Email poem(s) and 3-5 sentence description of relation to Emily Dickinson to Caffeine Theatre Artistic Director Jennifer Shook at jen@caffeinetheatre.com with “dwelling in possibility” in the subject heading. DEADLINE: February 28, 2009.
