Urban Epiphany 2008

We received word from Celia White, a local poet who has presented to our Teen Writing Camps, about a poetry marathon she is helping run. Here's the info:

You are invited to read at Urban Epiphany 2008, our seventh year. This Western New York poetry marathon invites all poets! Please forward this message to others.

The reading will take place Sunday, April 27, 2008, from 3-8 p.m. at the Unitarian Universalist Church at 695 Elmwood Avenue (at West Ferry). Suggested donation is $5 (covers the hall and incidental costs). We also welcome donations to help cover video and audio recording. We also welcome help at 2:30 to set up chairs, and help putting the chairs away after we finish.

As usual, our goal is to have every poet read for 2 minutes.This is approximately two pages of poetry. Please time your reading if you are unsure how long this is. I got a number of complaints last year about readers going long, but I do so hate to yellow card people, so please cooperate on this.

While we always keep a few slots each hour open for unscheduled poets, we like to schedule as much of the day as we can. Please reply with your preferred hour (between 3 and 8 pm) and we will do our best to accommodate all requests.

All publicity is welcome! Also, see the blog below for updates and reader info.
