When words reach beyond their given definition they become poetry. Like visual art, poetry allows audiences to extract significance from the spaces between what is said in order to discover what is meant. In this way, the practice and consumption of poetry is important to defining language by deconstructing it in its simplest and most complex forms. Please join us at nAbr gallery on the grounds of the Lynden Sculpture Garden for Poetry and a Picnic, July 31 from 6-7:30pm, to honor poetry and the way it makes space for an uncertainty about what exists between definitions.
Poetry submissions will be juried by Karl Saffran. Please send up to three of your poems for consideration. If your submission is accepted, you will receive free admission to the sculpture garden that day and will be expected to read during the event. Please send all submissions to nAbrgallery@gmail.com no later than July 29, 2013.
