The fifth round of SpeakEasy 27: A Spiritual Thread will be held on Saturday, February 27, 2021, at 7:00pm Pacific, as poets Dayna Patterson, Susan Alexander, Luther Allen, Jennifer Bullis, and Bruce Beasley share their linked explorations. The poets’ bios and video links to Rounds 1 through 4 are available on the SpeakEasy 27 page.
The Zoom reading is free and the link is included in Luther Allen’s announcement email or you may request the link (or ask to be added to his announcement list) by sending a note to firstname.lastname@example.org.
NOTE: A final, audience-response round has been added to the SpeakEasy 27 schedule, to be held Saturday, March 27, 2021, at 7:00pm Pacific. Poems must be directly linked to a readily identifiable phrase, line, or theme from a poem or poems presented in one of the first five rounds.
To have your poem considered for inclusion, send no more than two original poems to email@example.com as a Word or PDF attachment and clearly explain the linkage for each poem. Approximately 20 poets will be selected to read their poems and explain the connection to the earlier poem(s) during the hour-long March 27 program, which will be video recorded. Submitting a poem acknowledges that it is your original work, that you have Zoom audio and video capabilities, and that you will be available to read on March 27 if selected. The deadline for submissions is Saturday, March 13, with selections and notifications by March 21.
We look forward to seeing you on February 27.
