The PEI Writers’ Guild Board of Directors have been thinking of ways to connect the writing community across PEI at a time when we’re not meeting face to face, and we’re starting with the poets. April is poetry month, after all!
Here’s how it works:
1. Take a video of yourself (or someone else) reading a poem. You can read an original poem of yours or share a favourite poem, penned by someone else (just please state who, to give them credit).
2. Send to us (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Throughout the month of April, we’ll post these videos over on our main PEI Writers’ Guild Facebook page. Feel free to share them and fill Facebook with poetry.
Tip: Please try to keep your video under 60 seconds—these are meant to be short videos.
ALSO, If you are a poet and would like to host a live reading event, we would love to support you. Please email us at email@example.com and we can chat logistics.
Remember, as Oscar Wilde once said, “a poet can survive everything but a misprint.”
Let’s lift the Island spirits through poetry! Who’s in?
NOTE: Facebook only allows Events to be in 2-week spurts, so we’ll repost this half-way through the month.
