Voices of Poets is an event to break the cyber barrier carrying the voices of poets online around the world.
A Multi-Media Experience for poets and lovers of poetry
There are many poetry communities online that have open link times for poets to gather together. They read, learn, and critique each other’s work depending on what site it is and day. Here at The River our poetry mission has been to be a place for poets to be heard from around the world. Until now we have accomplished this by publishing the poems of poets but that did not feel like enough. It only encompassed the written word of voice. So, to keep with our mission we have come up with a way poets can be heard by sound with an online multi-media Poetry Slam. Then to add a little more excitement we have made it a contest too. The Poetry Slam will begin December 30th at 12pm CST for posting, listening, and voting and the doors will close December 31st at 12 pm. Invite
