New Project - Poetry Reading Group

Are you interested in participating in a poetry reading event of WBB members? If so, please, send your expression of interest to Based on the level of interest Mario will plan the event: venue, number of poems per poet, length of the poems, estimation of audience, etc. This event can be repeated, so if the number of interested poets is higher we can split it in more than one event.

Five to ten participants per event; 5 to 10 minutes per poet. The participants will be listed based on the date and time of their feedback to this email. There will be no cost for the performers, but in some cases a small fee can be charged to raise funds to pay for costs involved (refreshments, etc.) and to raise money for Writers Beyond Borders.
