Over The Edge: Write A Poem on Israel – Palestine

This is a press release from Over The Edge

Galway’s literary events organisation, Over The Edge, is looking for poems from poets worldwide on any aspect of the Israel-Palestine issue. The poems can be from any point of view. The only criteria being that they must work as poems and be in some way relevant to what has been happening in that part of the world.

We also welcome poems from those living in Israel, Gaza and the West Bank on any aspect of life as it is lived there.

We will publish the poems as part of a special feature on the Over The Edge website. http://overtheedgeliteraryevents.blogspot.com

The title of the project Will Days Indeed ComeI Come From There is borrowed from the titles of two poems: Will Days Indeed Come by Leah Goldberg and I Come From There byMahmoud Darwish.

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES: Poems should be e-mailed, both in the body of the e-mail and as an attachment to over-the-edge-openreadings@hotmail.com Poets should also simultaneously send a bio of no more than thirty words in the same format.
