    Sorry this is not a poem but there is a captive audience. Just want to know if there is any interest in a Poetflow for the summer of 2002.

    WHAT?
    Getting together to read poetry non stop for a weekend....no prizes...no catagories....no seminars....no rules for participation....no registration forms...no time schedule...no pre submission...no formal nothing. IF YOU GOT POETIC **** TO SAY, COME ON AND SAY IT. PERIOD! Nothing else is required because I for one don't want to be bothered with getting all the above mentioned stuff together.

    WHY SUMMER 2002?
    Ya'll know the majority of we folk need plenty of advance time to plan. We last minute, but don't do well when it needs to get done last minute :)

    WHERE?
    Kansas City, Mo. It's in the middle of the country. West folks don't have to come too far east and east coast folks don't have to come too far west. You would make your own travel arrangements and hotel arrangements. A large enough meeting room would be available for around the clock, open mic, poetic flow and minglin.'

    Further details will be forthcoming if enough people say they are down to come and mean it (very important)

    Hit me at [email protected] if you are SERIOUS about participating.

    Thanks,
    BE

    Hey Heartbeat ... you might wanna create a poll for this topic in the "Poll" category. I've seen several folk mention such a gathering in the forum and $$RICH$$ is over there (in the poll category) asking about it again. I'm going to share a link to this thread with him.

    UbZorb,

    Did you miss the part about Kansas City being right in the middle of the country? More of a geographical thing than an interesting thing. Thanks for the reply.
