Write On partners with Door Community Auditorium to present Words on Water for the Fireside Coffeehouse Series. Presented annually as Words on Fire, the 2019 offering will be part of the county-wide celebration and discussion of water. The program will be held on Saturday, February 2, 7 pm, at the Door Community Auditorium, Fish Creek.
We are putting another twist on this annual event. Rather than extending invitations to select readers and pairing them with musicians, we are putting out a call for poems with a water theme to be considered for the reading. Consider it an oral anthology. Poems may be new or previously published. An editorial committee will review poems and select those for the event.
Poets agree to be available to read their poem(s) on Saturday, February 2, or to find a substitute if they are unable to take part. An ensemble will provide the music for the program, independent of the poems.
Submit your poems to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Words On Water” in the subject line by 5 pm Friday, December 7.
