This just in from Kim Baker, who asked us to share with anyone who might be interested...

Greetings to All!
I am writing with a poetry call for submissions for a poetry and art show to take place in August 2013 at Wickford Art Association in Wickford, Rhode Island.  We are looking for your best poem!
This unique and exciting collaboration of poets and artists is also a fundraiser for the Rhode Island Community Food Bank.  So your entry fee will help feed those who don't have enough to eat.
Also, Wickford Art Association may select your poem to be part of a book for sale of poems and art from the show.  Imagine your poem in a book of art and poetry!  And the exhibit and book will give all poets and artists wonderful exposure to new audiences.
Here's how the show will work.  Once we have selected 55 poems, invited artists will then select one poem and create an original work of art inspired by it.  Both poem and work of art will be exhibited in an exciting first-of-its-kind exhibit in August at Wickford Art Gallery.
All selected poets and artists will be invited to the attend the opening of the exhibit.   
All these details, as well as payment and submission guidelines are below.  Please feel free to pass this along to anyone you think might be interested in submitting.
We can't wait to read your work! 
Carpe poetry and art!
Kim Baker
