Casting Poetry On the Lighter Side

Hello Poets!!!

There are two important dates for this challenge.

2) Reading on April 25th, 7:30 PM

Do you have poems you’d like to share with an audience? We are looking for poetry that illuminates the lighter side of life! Join me, Victoria Dym, MFA Creative Writing, for a night of poetry reading/performance. We are looking for giggles and guffaws at the new Commodore Theater, 811 E 7th Avenue. Showcase your work! To have your poetry considered and receive a spot at the microphone, send us your most funny, ironic, and/or sarcastic work. We want a literary LOL!

Poets–Email a maximum of two poems that can be read/performed in five minutes or less to: victorialaughs@yahoo.com 

Copy and paste your poetry into the body of the email; attachments will not be opened. Please include a brief bio of 75 words or less. The reading slots are limited, and you will be notified by April Fool’s Day if you have been selected to read your poems on Thursday, April 25th at the theater. If you are not available for the date of the show, kindly also RSVP your regrets.

Please pass this call for poets along freely!!!!  Here’s to a Happy National Poetry Month!

Be Well.
