Serving Out Poetry

Poets can be helpful to one another and that’s what I like most: publishing friends or admirees, setting up reading performances which includes all the publicity, getting it all going, putting chairs up and m.c.ing if need be, recording the event if possible, putting chairs away and cleaning up, starting workshops (which I’m no good at initiating), listening to others and encouraging the whole shebang, helping to find publication or cooperatively getting online keys to newfangled broadcasting of the muse–farcical, furious, or enlightened–so much to do and so much undone. What do you do to aid & enliven your poet & poetry landscape?

    Hey Larry,

    I’m in whole hearted agreement with you. I also think we should do all the things you mentioned not only as a service to poetry but to the wonderful city of Albuquerque (and surroundings). Creating spaces where people can speak their minds (poetry or whatever) is important. Now more than ever.

  2. poetry is a given therefore give back must involve service to other poets & enthusiasts . . . in my opinion . . .

  3. i use to help run an open mic in denver but since i have been back here in st. louis i have done very little other then offered my web site and sub domains to poets this late summer tom peters and i or going to set up a sub domain that makes the poetic connection of me in the mid-west and him there in the west, also i am will to set up a sub domain that connects the west coast the midwest the south the east coast if you know of any poets who will like to be apart of this ideal please sent them my way thank david
