    April is our month ya'll so lets live it up


    Man oh man I just wanted to share with ya'll some intense poets that I saw perform live tonight reading from their books

    Steve Kowit

    &

    (last week) Linda Hogan


    If you have a chance to read any of their works I recommend them they were great live....and their poems are just amazing....far more advance then anybody I know

    Also my first open mic night and I performed "vertical Vent" and "Departed Cliffhanger" the audienced loved it and it was such a rush....if you never been to a poetry reading I recommend that as well its more intense then the internet

    Also I read one of my haiku's today at school winning a cool japanese prize....the judges selected 4 poets out of 40 and I was one of them....I felt so honored

    so with all that in mind my message tonight is simple

    GO OUT AND SHARE YOUR POEMS WITH THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    go to one first, and see how it's done correctly or at what level their poetry is at before you get up there and do one. Most poetry spots are cool anyway so you won't be laughed at or made fun of if you suck or w/e.

    ^do a spoken word on the street corner :tongue: I'm sure they have something going on at a nearby college/university.

    Last year during the summer I took a trip to the International Arts Festival in New Orleans with my creative writing class, it was one of the best experiences. Almost like the Essence Festival, ppl. coming from all over the world.

    Something else I really wanna go to is Jazz Fest! I think it starts on the 22nd this month. Every year they have it and every year I never go. But anyway, I haven't been to a spoken word in a while. The last time went to one was during spring break at this place called Lip Loc (poetry lounge) in New Orleans. Last time I actually did one.....::whistles:: I miss the atmosphere.
