Below is a summary of open opportunities for poets interested in participating in WordXWord Festival events.
(Poets Creating Conversation)
We're asking poets to circle the wagons around Marking Time and have at it.
Register via Via Zoom to simply attend or to share a poem (we're marking time until the air clears up).
Notes for poets interested in participating: Poets Creating Conversation challenges you to provoke and bear witness as we circle around a theme (in this case "marking time"). The fine print - no personal attacks (if you need to address an individual or specific institution in your work, anonymize it). Poetry - 3 minutes or less. Be considerate to the other poets, time yourself ahead of time - trim it, edit it, iron out the creases - make it fit (please).
WordXWord uses spoken word, poetry and storytelling in shared space and time to celebrate diversity and creativity, empower the individual, foster understanding and empathy, and make real human connections.
All WXW programs are free and open to all. WordXWord Festival, Inc is a 501(C)(3).
