APRIL IS NATIONAL POETRY MONTH
Announcement...I have an announcement. RE: November 21st (Waiting 4 the Bus to Thanksgiving) Our feature will be Susanna Lang and that's already special, but the Open Mic will be super special. In Honor of the birthday of Lesley Heath Morrow, we will be celebrating with a Poetry Wheel.
The Poetry Wheel is an interconnected round robin where a poem must somehow connect to the poem immediately prior. this connection can be in form, theme, style, etc.
Any connection will do. "that poem was about the Blues and this poem contains the word Blue" is enough of a connection to keep the Wheel of Poetry turning.
I warn you early because this exercise is not for the faint of heart or people with only written 6 poems.
Write On, brothers and sisters, Write On!
MONTHLY ON THE THIRD MONDAY
NOT THE OLD ADDRESS BUT THE NEW ADDRESS, CHECK THE ADDRESS NOT THE SIGN.
On the last Sunday In April, The Poetry Bomb aims to fill as many public locations as humanly possible with performances of poetry all at the exact same time.
That Poetry Bomb sounds cool! How do I get involved:
You can be a member of the Bomb Squad in one of the following ways:

So now that I know how I want to be involved, what do I do?
