[mgj-discuss] Jubilee Poetry Auditions

Jubilee USA's first-ever Celebration is coming in October! As an homage
to the longstanding bond between activism and art, two sections of the
program have been reserved for a collaborative poetry performance
created by members of the DC area poetry community.
*When:* Tuesday, Oct. 3, 2006, 6p-7:30p
*Where:* Jubilee USA headquarters
222 E. Capitol St. NE, Washington, DC 20003
We're the building on the left attached to the Lutheran Church of the
Reformation, and across the street from the Shakespeare Library and
Libraries of Congress. The nearest Metro stop is Capitol South. When
people arrive for the audition, there will be someone outside to greet them.
The poets auditioning don't have to write anything for the audition;
only perform something of their own. We don't have a quota of people we
need for the pieces (there are two separate ones...one at the beginning
of the program, one at the end), only the need for impassioned voices to
discuss the Jubilee mission of debt cancellation in the developing world
as a means of ending poverty worldwide.
Poets selected for the performance will receive: a thank you in the
program; a complimentary meal the night of the performance; and will be
able to display their fliers, info and sell CDs after the Celebration ends.
Links to the auditions and Celebrations fliers are at

more info about who we're honoring and why.
