Guest host on Online Internet Poetry Show
Yes, the guests will be older than the kids in the picture. Three of which are related to me.
Most of you know I listen to a live internet poetry show each week on BlogTalkRadio.
I've been invited to be a guest co-host for the night. Before you get all impressed, he asks a different poet each week but I'm happy anyway.
It pays no money, give me no fame, but I do get to comment on all the open mike poetry readings. You don't have to sign up to listen. You can listen by just having a computer with sound. Don't have a computer with sound? You can also call or Skype in. Skype is free.
POETRY SHOW LINK
I find spoken word poetry to be different from poetry written for the page. I'm learning to listen more to how my words sound as opposed to how they appear in my head or on the page.
If you want to read one of your poems, just call or Skype in. You'll be put on a call list and when it's your turn, you'll get to read and talk about your poem.
Usually about 30 to 40 participating listeners to the show. And there are several call ins that are never listed.
Show starts at 8pm EST. It ends after 10:30pm sometime.
