Some of you probably know that this section of PIP occasionally hosts an impromptu "Open mic" night, where poets come in at a specified time, ICQ each other like mad, and post poems into Poetic Haven.
The first one went off wonderfully. The second one less so. The third, no one showed up at all. All of these were on Friday nights. And I have been guilty of having to postpone or cancel open mic nights because Fridays, quite frankly, are not the best day.
So here's a question for everyone here:
What *would* be a good day for everyone?
For me, Thursday would be the most ideal, if we held an open mic once each month, or bi-weekly.
Let's get a consensus on this so we can plan another open mic, which always turns out fun (when people show up).
Here are some of the rules:
*A list of 25 phrases will be posted the evening of the open mic. If you have any phrases you'd like to see become poems, feel free to e-mail them to me, and I'll try to incorporate some of them.
*Ten minutes before the open mic is to start, PdV and I will compile the list and post it in this forum.
*Once the phrases are posted, there will be a two-hour window to turn the phrases into poems and post them into Poetic Haven. Just go down the list, writing the ones you want, skipping the ones you don't. On open mic nights, the "three posts minimum" rule is suspended in Sanctuary. Feel free to ICQ each other and chat -- have a good time.
If you're interested, please consider this the sign-up sheet. Leave a reply to this post with what day and time you think is best, and we'll try and figure out which one is best for everyone.
I hope there's still interest in this. It's a great chance to meet with poets you might not otherwise be exposed to.
Said if I only could ...
