Get Caffeinated

Caffeine Theatre wants YOU -- to send them your original poetry for their "Old Father William's Frabjous and Curious Poetry Contest." Just follow their rules:

  • Submissions may include any size or style of poem, as long as it is inspired in some way by the life or work of Lewis Carroll, or in some way speaks in conversation with that life or work.
  • Nonsense poems and poems exploring symbolic logic are especially encouraged.
  • Winners will be posted and podcast on Caffeine's website, and performed at the Lewis Carroll Coffeehouse at the end of November.
  • Any new or previously written poem may be submitted (provided it can be republished/recorded/performed).

Submit your Lewis Carroll-inspired, nonsense poems by emailing the poems and a 3-5 sentence description of their relation to Lewis Carroll to the Caffeine Theatre Associate Artistic Director, Daniel Smith, at dan@caffeinetheatre.com. Make sure you have "Old Father William" in the subject heading! The deadline for submissions is October 31, 2010.
