Call for poets

The Acoustic Garden/One Love Ink
is assisting in the planning of an event produced by UnderGroundKweens2U. They hold special poetry events monthly at The Underground [formerly Club 75] located at 75 Public Square in downtown Cleveland.


This is a "White/Chocolate" affair. Meaning we are reaching for Diversity in culture. We are looking for features to do fifteen minute spots. Male and Female, both cultures. At the same time, we are looking for about 8 poets who will read 1 or 2 poems max.

The criteria for your poem is that is must revolve around Love. Person to Person, or Person to God. Erotica is most definitely welcomed as well, presented tastefully.


In addition, we are seeking 2 painters/sketch artists who would like to create a work of art from the perspective of the mood of the night as displayed from the stage, or received by the audience. You will have two (2) hours to prepare your interpretation. There will be a silent auction with the proceeds going to you for your work, less a percentage donation which will go to the charity[ies] that are going to be involved, such as The Lupus Foundation which they support.

Because of the timeframe we need to hear from you as soon as possible. If you are interested as a poet, please submit a sample of your work [written or recorded] to NeoSouljah at neothepoet@yahoo.com

If as an artist, the same would be appreciated or a link to your website so that we can see your craft. The deadline to submit is Friday, December 26, 2008.


I'm looking forward to hearing from you. I know from perusing your pages, reading your books, and being a part of this group that there are some prolific artists on here, and we are excited about bringing the cultures together for a night of entertainment and enlightenment. Ticket sales will be announced after we secure the featured poets. The night will be filled with poetry and other arts at their best [music, dance, photography]. Singles are welcomed too! Don't stay home without a date. Enjoy the sandwiches, chocolate dipped fruits, and treat yourself to a massage.....More info to come!


One Love,
