CALL FOR POETRY SUBMISSIONS

On Saturday, April 22, 2006, Jane Addams Hull House Center for Arts & Culture will host a showcase of poetry by youth with disabilities organized by Access Living of Metropolitan Chicago.

We are looking for poetry submissions from young people with disabilities, ages 13-25. Poems should reflect your experience with disability in some way. Because we expect a large volume of entries and we have a limited time for the reading, a panel of judges will decide on the poems to be read beforehand.

The selected poets will read their poems on Saturday, April 22, 2006, from 3 to 5 pm at Jane Addams Hull House Center for Arts & Culture, 1136 W. Wilson. Admission will be free. To learn more about the Center, please see http://www.hullhouse.org/arts or call 773-907-9403.
