For SAMLA’s conference in 2010, four graduate students in poetry will have the opportunity to read at the Graduate Student Poetry Circle. Since the focus of the 2010 SAMLA Convention is “The Interplay of Text and Image,” poets will read from their work that embraces this sense of interplay. Poets selected will read for fifteen minutes and will also speak for approximately five minutes on how their work or another contemporary poet’s work plays with text and image. The conference will take place in Atlanta, Georgia from November 5th-7th.
Please send a bio, a sample of three poems, and a brief paragraph that describes how your work or how a contemporary poet’s work merges text and image by February 15th to Charlotte Pence: cpence1-AT-utk-DOT-edu). Travel funds are available on a competitive basis through SAMLA.
