Dear Favorite Poem Contributors,
It’s with much excitement that I announce the second public reading of Santa Clara County’s Favorite Poems Thursday, December 1, 7pm at Booksmart in Morgan Hill. I am looking for a second group of readers to participate in this south county reading. As many of you know, our first reading last month was a great success with over 60 in attendance to hear these memorable readings.
As before, each reader will be given 5 minutes each total to read both their previously submitted favorite poem contribution with personal comment. Time limits are strictly enforced. If you chose a lengthy poem, please time your reading and select a portion that will fit our limited schedule. Readers will be assigned a specific time slot in advance of the event.
Readers will be selected on a first-come, first-served basis, so if this is something in which you’d be interested in participating and you are able to commit to the December 1 date, do respond here asap. Include your full name and poem submitted. I will inform you of your selection.
Don’t worry if you can’t join us this time around or aren’t part of the first respondents. I will be holding one more reading in another location in the County in the first of the year.
Thanks again for your contributions and support of poetry in Santa Clara County! I look forward to hearing from you. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sally Ashton, Poet Laureate
