Hey Chicago poetry fans, here's some more July news for ya.

ChicagoPoetry.com will have two representatives passing out free copies of Cram 9 at The Printers Ball. Look for Donna Pecore and Donna Kiser at the Ball to get your free copy of Cram.

The Next Objectivists is a free, open-to-the-public poetry workshop dedicated to the study & reproduction of the "outsidereal". They take this term from the “Black Mountain” poet Edward Dorn and their name from the second generation modernist poets associated with The Objectivist Press. They seek the poetry of the multitude, the poetry that tears away from the rule of singularity proposed by elites. Participants at the upcoming meetings are asked to bring a poem by someone else about a dream or dreaming and an account, in any genre or medium, of a dream they remember. You will discuss these poems, swamp dreams, and write together. All meetings begin promptly at 7 PM at the Mess Hall, 6932 North Glenwood Avenue, less than a block from the Morse Street Red Line station. Upcoming dates include July 22, August 12 and 26, and September 9 and 23.

Highland Park Poetry says be sure to visit the Muses' Gallery by clicking here to see the results of their 2010 Funny Poetry Contest.

Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation (MAAF) kicks-off July with the opening of the poetry-themed online exhibition On Both Sides of Our Door available on the Mid Atlantic Artist Registry site July 1. The exhibition features works by Linda Blaskey, Emari DiGiogrio, Barbara Goldberg, Kathleen Hellen, Louise Kennelly, Joshua Poteat, and Pat Valdata. Click here to check it out.

It's a big year at the Tennessee Williams / New Orleans Literary Festival as they get ready to celebrate their 25th anniversary and the 100th birthday of Tennessee Williams. They are excited to announce their first ever poetry contest, with Louisiana Poet Laureate Darrell Bourque as judge. The prize is a thousand dollars, a VIP pass worth $500, publication and a featured reading. Click here to learn how to enter.

Until next time, peace and take care,

--CJ Laity


On Monday, July 12, the featured poet for the Molly Malone's Open Mic at 7652 Madison Street, Forest Park, IL, will be Donna Vorreyer. It runs from 7 to 9:30 PM and there is a $3 to $5 suggested donation.

On Wednesday, July 21, the Guild Complex will take a step toward enhancing the dialogue and awareness of work coming out of the Latino and African American poetry communities. Palabra Pura, Chicago’s monthly Latino reading series, will initiate Palabra Pura Special Events by occasionally inviting African American poets to share its stage. Palabra Pura Special Events are the brainchild of Francisco Aragón, poet and Director of Letras Latinas at the Institute for Latino Studies at Notre Dame, and Quraysh Ali Lansana, poet and Director of the Gwendolyn Brooks Center for Black Literature & Creative Writing at Chicago State University. The vision is to have writers from these two communities come together to share their work and respond to each other’s work. The Palabra Pura Special Event series will begin on Wednesday, July 21, with acclaimed Latina poet María Luisa Arroyo reading alongside noted African American poet Roger Bonair-Agard. This month’s reading will be at Décima Musa, 1901 S. Loomis, Chicago. An open mic starts the evening at 7:30 PM; the reading begins at 8 p.m. Admission is free. All ages are welcome.

On Sunday, July 25, from 1:30 to 4:30, Rhino Magazine (now accepting submissions, click here) and the Evanston Public Library at Church & Orrington will present a Chapbook Workshop led by Allison Joseph in Room 108. A $5 to $10 donation is appreciated and no advance registration is required. Bring 15 or more copies (no longer than two pages) of work you want critiqued.
