Entries due by February 14, 2016
If you are a sex worker/person in the sex trade and have a strong connection to New Jersey (live here or work here or come from here), then contribute a poem or similar to the International Sex Worker Rights Day podcast competition by February 14, 2016. New Jersey Red Umbrella Alliance (NJRUA) will select several of the pieces to read for our International Sex Worker Rights Day podcast. Contributors maintain copyright of their art but will provide permission for it to be shared on our podcast. All contributors will receive a tasteful sex worker rights sticker provided by BPPP (Best Practices Policy Project) and contributors’ work that is read on the podcast will win a sex worker rights t-shirt.
The competition will be judged by founding members of NJRUA. The inaugural NJRUA poetry podcast will be recorded/edited by PJ Starr and released on soundcloud on March 2, 2016. The podcast builds on a tradition begun by Robyn Few, who read a poem created by her friends for International Sex Worker Rights Day in 2010: http://moralhighground.tumblr.com/post/441642564/poem-for-march-3rd-read-by-robyn-few-in
Contribute your poem, words, lyrics, etc to firstname.lastname@example.org by Feburary 14, 2016 to be in the running to win a t-shirt and have your poem read for inclusion on the podcast. You may contribute anonymously (ie we don’t have to read any name on the podcast) or you may provide us with a name and short bio if you wish. Also please indicate that we have your permission to use your art/poem/words for our podcast.
