Love Letters to my Child…A Black Poetry Theatre Production
Black Poetry Theatre is looking for poets, singers, and performing artists to submit pieces talking to, with, or praying for the children of our present and our future. This can be a poem, personal letter/statement or just a wish for the children in our families and communities. Our aim is to share the different stories, ideas and hopes that we have in our hearts for our children. We also want to reflect the various ways we prepare them for the world around them.
Once collected, the selected pieces will be incorporated into a BPT production showing January 10th and 11th, 2020 at the Hayti Heritage Center in Durham. The combination of music, rhythm, words, and expression will create a moment that will inspire for generations to come. We would love for you to help us in crafting a powerful production for our audience.
Submissions can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. In the subject line of your email put “BPT Love Letters submission”. Please put your name, email, and phone number in your email. You can submit up to two pieces.
Once again, submissions can be letters, poems, or statements of hope and affirmation. We are accepting submissions until November 15, 2019. Notifications of the pieces selected will be sent the week of December 1, 2019.
*Submissions will not be used without permission of the author.
