Call for Poems about the “American Dream”
for Reading at Tribute WTC Visitor Center

Tribute WTC Visitor Center invites people in New York City and surrounding areas to submit poems reflecting the meaning of the American Dream. Poems may describe why people have left their homelands and come to this country, or how native born Americans view the American Dream. We welcome poems by students, professional poets and aspiring poets of all ages. The submitted poems will be reviewed by a panel of poets, and about 30 will be selected to be read on Sunday, April 19, 2008 at 1 pm at the 3rd Annual Tribute Center Poetry Reading.

Student poets will receive a certificate in addition to being invited to read at the event.

This 3rd Annual Tribute Center Poetry Reading is held in conjunction with National Poetry Month in April, and the Tribute Center’s latest exhibit, Renewing Our American Dream After 9/11 which will be on display from March 5 through September.

Poems must be received by March 30, and may be sent to: Meriam Lobel, Tribute Center Office, 22 Cortlandt Street, Suite 801, New York, NY 10007 or by email to mlobel@tributewtc.org.

We are unable to respond to everyone who submits a poem, but those whose poems are selected will be notified.

Everyone is invited to attend the reading. Seating at Tribute is limited, and reservations are strongly suggested. Please email rsvp@tributewtc.org. The Tribute WTC Visitor Center is located at 120 Liberty Street, NY, NY 10006
