Sunday, July 22nd
at Woman Made Gallery
685 N. Milwaukee Ave -- free admission

Woman Made Gallery will feature poets who work tirelessly to create opportunities for other artists and writers to get their work out in front of the world – the editors, curators and people who staff arts organizations. Although some are better known for opening doors, many of these people have vibrant writing practices of their own. This reading will provide an opportunity to get to know the poetry of several such women.

Woman Made Gallery is a tax-exempt, not-for-profit organization founded in 1992. Its goal is to support women in the arts by providing opportunities, awareness and advocacy. It specifically accomplishes this through exhibitions which raise public awareness and recognition of women's cultural contributions.
