A Call for Poetry - Aqui Me Quedo extended 280dpi

“Aqui Me Quedo” es un projecto cual celebrará el espíritu, la historia y la gente that make up La Broa’

This is a call for Rhode Island-based Latinx artists to submit a poem, spoken word piece that speaks to these themes:

  • En la Broa’ yo encontre una mano amiga?
  • La Broa’ has been a crossroad where you saw someone you thought you would never see again?
  • Did you find love on this Street?
  • Has it been a place where you found opportunity?
  • … a place that reminds you of home?
  • Dime un cuento de la Broad…
  • Have you ever been inspired on the street or by the street?
  • Did a Salon on Broad Street ever pick up your spirit?
  • El cerquillo of a lifetime?

Feel as free as the spirit of Broad Street when creating your piece | Maximum 250 words | Works must be original, unpublished | You may submit more than one poem.

Six poet-artists will be selected | Cash prizes available for selected poetas | Selected poets will be asked to do a recorded reading and their voice/poetry will be used for a video created by the LatinxCine @RILA Team.
