Hey so like I have this poetry reading

You wanna share it with everyone on here? Well, you came to the right place.

We’re not looking for readings you find online, but readings where you personally know they exist because you’ve been at their most recent reading.

We don’t want poetry readings listed here that don’t exist.

Here’s a list of what we’d love to have for your reading:

Name of the place where reading is hosted.
Name of the reading.
Address, City, State and Zip Code (or country)
Name of person who runs the reading
Their email address or phone number to verify info.
Day of of the month or week the reading occurs (if it is recurring)
Date of poetry reading (if it only occurs once)
Begin and End time of reading.
Is it just poetry, or music, comedy, open mic, poetry, etc.
Can anyone read?
What’s the format (2 poems per person, round robin, etc)
Do they have featured poets?

If it’s a virtual group poetry reading:

Name of reading
City, State, Country where it’s hosted.
Contact person’s name
Contact person’s email
Day of of the month the reading occurs (if it is recurring)
Date of poetry reading (if it only occurs once)
Begin and End time of reading.
Is it just poetry, or music, comedy, open mic, poetry, etc.
Can anyone read?
What’s the format (2 poems per person, round robin, etc)
Do they have featured poets?

Anything beyond this is super helpful.

As we don’t have the staff to call a million locations around the globe to verify all this info, the more information you have, the easier it will be for us.

Thanks!!!

Along that line… I want to start a recurring poetry reading thing in my town, and I’m looking for some guidance about what all is entailed. Small tourist town. I am old, but feisty.

I’d say that you first have to decide what kind of reading that you want. Are you just interested in an open mic or do you want feature poets? Slam? So many ways that you can go.
