Remi Kanazi - CALLING ALL POETS!
Our goal is to bring together poets, spoken word artists, hip hop artists, Palestinians, Arabs, Jews, Americans and all those who choose to raise their voice for humanity and justice. In addition to its written works, Poets for Palestine will feature art created by Palestinians artists from the Occupied Territories and throughout the world.
The book will primarily focus on issues pertaining to Palestine. We are, however, accepting poems on related subjects (i.e. Lebanon and Iraq).
Whether submitting to Poets for Palestine or taking interest in various other cultural events, film festivals or literary projects, now is not a time to be complacent, but instead one to proactively fight for those seeking a homeland, peace, stability and a dream of their own design.
The deadline for submissions is November 10, 2006. Submissions can be emailed to Poets4Palestine@gmail.com or mailed to P.O. Box 255 New York, NY 10013. Please do not submit more than 5 poems as we will be considering a large volume of work.
