It is 2009 and time for another POETRY BOMB! This year's Poetry Bomb is April 19th, at 3:30pm.
What is the Poetry Bomb?: The Poetry Bomb is a random act of poetry in celebration of National Poetry month. At 3:30pm on April 19th, the Poetry Bomb asks us to leave our homes and perform poetry out in the city, suburbs, parks, wherever people will hear it.
You can put together a poetry show, or you can go it alone as a solitary poet. All this event asks is to take ten minutes (or more) of your time to either showcase to the world that poetry is alive and thriving, or simply enjoy the show.
How do I get involved? Not only is getting involved easy, we are here to help you through every step of the way. If you wish to read, pick a location that works best for you, and read April 19th at 3:30. Our only request is that you let us know so we can advertise it (if you don't want the exact location advertised, we'll simply mention the city, or area you'll be performing).
If you'd like to organize a show and would like some help, e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll be happy to lend whatever aid we can.
If you already run a poetry show, and would like us to advertise your show, or would like to help us advertise the Poetry Bomb, please send us an email (email@example.com) either with your show's information, or a Poetry Bomb flier request (please let us know what file format will work best for you)
