Seeking poems for the Iraqi People

My friend Batja Cates forwarded a message to me encouraging people to write poems for the Iraqi people.

Cynthia Bryant the poet laureate for Pleasanton, California is soliciting poems for Gift of Words-Poems for the Iraqi People project.

The Challenge: Write a poem for the Iraqi People, something that you want to express to their citizens. Who: Anyone, any age can write a poem and submit it to be included into The Gift of Words; Poetry for the Iraqi People

She has received poems from all over the country as well as the world including New Zealand, England, Scotland and Africa.

The deadline has been extended to May 2007.

You may send contributions by snail mail to Pleasanton Poet Laureate, P. O. Box 520, Pleasanton, CA 94566. or by email at PoetsLane@comcast.net.

She asks that you include your full name, area code and phone number along with your e-mail if you have one.
