THEME: "Summer Daze" Sunday, July 26, 2020
The Ancient City Poets will host a community open mic reading on line through the zoom meeting platform. Forget about the doom and gloom,and join us in the zoom room.
Give us two or three of your polished poems or share fresh ink from your notebook. We are all getting antsy and we can't wait to meet again in public to hug, fellowship, and applaud each other's written words. We have been gathering for free open mic poetry reading since August of 2009.
The zoom meeting ID number is listed in the description of the Facebook event page. Here is the link:
If you don't do Facebook, then send us an email from the "contact" section of this webpage and it will be emailed to you.
A sign-up sheet will be available at 2:30 and the open mic will start at 3:00 pm. At that time the facilitator will ask everyone who is logged on if they would like to be on the reading list. Readers will be called to the “podium” in the order their names appear on the list. The first 15 readers will be guaranteed a spot at the mic.
During this time of social distancing, the North Florida poetry community has moved to an online platform to share their written words. The June reading featured a visit from Mid-West poet John Dorsey.
SUPPORT OUR READING VENUE
As soon as social distancing is a memory, we will return to the Corazon, located at 36 Granada St in Saint Augustine, Florida. The Corazon is open most evenings. We do ask that you patronize them and thank them for opening their doors to poetry and spoken word and performance art.
Here is the menu:
ANCIENT CITY POETS ON YOUTUBE
Two years ago, for National Poetry Month, we launched a YouTube Channel to preserve our past. We always encourage video students and volunteers with cameras to help us document the Saint Augustine poetry scene.
Subscribe to our channel so you can get notified whenever new footage is added. Check out this vintage video clip shot featuring Chris Bodor from 1999. Two years before the Twin Towers fell. One month before Y2K. This footage is truly a time capsule treasure. The clip appears on a YouTube Channel that Chris Bodor also maintains. The channel is something that you should support and subscribe to if you are interested in words and footage of Saint Augustine, Florida poet Chris Bodor. The channel also features old video projects and clips produced by the poet.
News to use for the Ancient City Poets, Poet Plant Press, and Chris Bodor poetry projects.
