Win free tickets to a screening of Hey, Boo!

A few months ago, I wrote about Hey, Boo, the new documentary about Harper Lee and her classic novel, To Kill a Mockingbird. Now, you can win tickets to a fantastic event at the Paley Center next Wednesday night: a screening of the film and a panel discussion with Mary Murphy, who made the film, Tom Brokaw, of NBC News, and James McBride, author of The Color of Water.

So, what do you have to do to win yourself tickets to the screening? You have to write us a poem.

Make it a sonnet or a haiku, a limerick or an epic masterpiece. Just make it a poem, and make it about feminism. Poetically sucking up to Feministing Editors and Contributors is highly encouraged, as is finding a word that rhymes with “Steinem.” Seriously, I can’t think of anything to rhyme with that.

Authors of the five best poems will get go to the screening and take a friend along with them.

Email your poetic masterpieces to by midnight tonight. Winners will be announced tomorrow.

    I can rhyme with “Gloria Steinem”
    But Paley’s zip code is different from my num
    If the Center were in my state
    Myself I’d ingratiate
    Each editor, I’d wine and dine ‘em.

    Steinem almost rhymes with hymen.
