Poets: Spend Time in the City of Big Shoulders

Here’s another residency that I’m dying to be selected for and I’m not even remotely eligible. Tell your poet friends:

The Poetry Center of Chicago Summer Residency

The Poetry Center of Chicago and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago are pleased to announce that they will award a poetry residency in the heart of Chicago's vibrant downtown. One poet will be awarded a month-long poetry residency with housing. This residency is open to poets who have published no more than one book of poetry, not including self-published work.

In addition to housing, the Poet will receive a $1,000 stipend. The Poet is responsible for his/her own travel and meal expenses.

Accommodations will be provided at The School of the Art Institute's residency tower, located in the Loop at 162 North State Street, which is walking distance from Lake Michigan, museums, including the Art Institute where the poet will receive free admission, and other attractions. The spacious studio apartments feature kitchens and private baths.

Submission deadline Friday, May 09, 2008. Applications and supporting materials must be received in office by 6 pm on Friday, May 09, 2008.
