I'll be reading old and new poems this Thursday as part of the Livewords Reading Series. Here's the details:
At Cervejaria, 842 College Street (just west of Ossington)
7:00 p.m. Doors Open
7:30 p.m. Open Mic Sign-Up
8:00 p.m. Performances Commence
Also reading are Jacob McArthur Mooney, author of The New Layman's Almanac, and Guy Ewing.
NOTE: See below. The open stage will be for cover poems only! I love this idea. I'm imaginging a good half-hour of honest tributes to great poets. It should prevent a good number of the bad-poetry remoras who attach themselves to these open-mic things from showing up.
† OPEN MIC CONTEST: Best Reading of a cover poem - $50 Cash Prize; sign-up and get your poem at 7:30 PM. Contest judges will pick the winner.
