This year's Dead Poets' Slam will be held at Thundering Word, rather than at the Poetry Slam. Here are the details:
Sunday, November 2
8pm (sign-up at 7:30)
Cafe Montemartre on Main Street
Poets will dress up as their favourite dead poet and read/recite their works. Feature poet is the (very much alive) Ukelele King, Ralph Shaw.
I'm trying to figure out who to be this year. Last year I was Marcel Marceau. The year before I was Emily Dickinson. Now I must do research. There are many dead poets, but recognizable ones are hard to find. I'd like to be a girl this year. There will be lots of Sylvia Plaths, and I am older than that. hmmmmm
question: If you were a dead poet, which dead poet would you be?
