Tell us about your favorite poem
The Favorite Poem Project and Chicago’s own Poetry Foundation are seeking readers to appear in videos documenting the role of poetry in the lives of Chicagoans.
To be considered for inclusion, please complete the form below. Submissions should include the title and author of your chosen poem and a few sentences about why the poem is especially meaningful to you.
A reader may choose an historical or contemporary poem, written in English or in another language. The selection will be based on what the individual reader has to say, in a personal way, and on the literary value of the particular poem. The videos at favoritepoem.org provide a model. Five poems will be featured in a series of videos that will launch during National Poetry Month in April 2014.
The deadline for submissions is November 30. Only entries from Chicagoland residents will be considered.
