    Pasing this along.....

    Fellow Poets,


    I thought the easiest way to get the message out to as many poets as
    possible would be to send an email to all the poets who run or help
    run their perspective scenes.

    For all those who wanted to get their chance to send in a tape for
    the upcoming season of HBO's Def Poetry here it is.

    Format for tapes/DVDs(no audio cassettes, please!!)
    2 poems performed in front of a live audience
    (no longer than 5 minutes in length for both poems)
    Name and contact info necessary
    all the bio stuff is not

    Tapes will be accepted until the 21st of September

    Where to send them:
    Shihan Van Clief
    c/o Def Poetry
    5923 Willoughby Ave #1
    Los agneles, CA 90038

    Now, I know there are a lot of poets who aren't interested in
    submitting a tape(for whatever reasons) but that doesn't mean other
    poets in your scene should not be allowed to, and since you guys/gals
    are the contacts for each city, I ask that you please pass this info
    to whoever's interested.

    Thanks for your time

    p.s. Group Pieces are also being looked at with the same time
    restraints

    Damn, performing in front of a live audience...definitely don't have tapes of that, although I've done it...
