Sat Apr16: 25th Poetry Open House

More #NMPoetry for NPM. 1:00 - 4:30 pm, Saturday, April 16 at Billy Brown's & Sandi Blanton's home, Billy writes to extend an invitation to all ...

Poets and Poetry Lovers,

We are pleased to invite you to our home for the 25th Quarterly Poetry Open House ...  beginning our 7th year of these lovely events! Hope to see you on Saturday!
Yours for powerful poetry, Billy Brown, cell: 401-8139


Poetry Open House, 1:00 - 4:30 pm,  Saturday, April 16, 2011

Billy Brown's & Sandi Blanton's home. 2909 Monterey Ave  SE, Albuquerque (3 streets south of Coal, 3 houses east of Girard)

Read your own poems, or poems by other poets or just relax, listen, and enjoy the magic of poetry. We provide the tea. OPTIONAL: You may bring a snack to share ~ NOT required! Please invite/bring friends.

Please RSVP only if you PLAN to attend, so that I can accommodate the number attending. (If you happen to change your mind and decide to attend at the last minute, PLEASE do come ... you are welcome, even if you do not RSVP ... :-)

REMEMBER: This is an "open house" so you can come and go as you please ...
please just be quiet as you arrive, so that you don't disrupt the poem being read at that time ...

I am always inspired by the wonderful poetry read here. Thanks to over 100 people who have participated so far. Many people who have attended say that this is among their favorite formats for reading and sharing poetry, taking turns reading one poem each, and then moving on to the next person. We usually complete 4-6 rounds of reading, separated occasionally with breaks for snacks/beverages.
You may read your own poem, or a poem by someone else. I have a large library of poetry books and periodicals, from which you may choose poems to read, if  you like. Please feel welcome to sing your poetry (called a song) or have someone accompany you with an instrument. (These modes do not happen often, but when they DO happen, it is wonderful!)

I hope that you can make it. If you have any questions, please feel free to reply to this message
or to call me at my cell: 401-8139. If I do not answer, please leave a message with your name and a phone number where I can reach you, and I'll get back to you ASAP!
