Who says poetry has to be serious all the time–or even any of the time? Or that poetry can’t be serious and hilarious at the same time? Woman Made Gallery is looking for writing by women that explores the many ways humor can be used in poetry–e.g., humorous imagery, funny subject matter, political and social satire, parodies of well-known poems/poets, and poems that use humor to make serious statements (or vice versa). All styles and themes will be considered, from the subtly wry to the sidesplitting, that’s rich, this woman is funny!
Please submit up to three original works by emailing gallery(at)womanmade.org. Entry deadline is January 10, 2009. Selected readers must be able to read in person at Woman Made Gallery on February 8, 2009.
