We welcome you to this group. This group is for A) Poets who want to showcase their works B) People who enjoy reading poetry.

You may also share here poems from other poets in this forum. We can also discuss here about poetry in general. You may quench your curiosity about anything and everything about poetry here. I hope we reach the critical mass of active members to make this happen and also be able to start some offline activities as well.

OK Candy gave us a venue, and only two people responded. I am one of them. I write professional grade, performance poetry for large audiences. I alone have enough material to go for 30 minutes straight... How long can YOU go for? What are YOU made of? Can we do a slam in Shanghai or not? Let's start building the line up. Speak up or be forever silent, poets. Speak up for be forever silent.

Another person has offered a venue for poetry. If you want to go, please reply somewhere. Show people that you exist, and you like poetry and you will go.

Oh, we have Darcy and Klancy so far. Anyone else ready to have a meeting and slam some poetry? Anyone here?

Anyone here, the echo echoed echoed echoed,

anyone here anyone here anyone here.

The reverberation came back back, back again, anyone anyone anyone Here here here!

Is there anyone? Here here here! I heard the echo, not knowing it was my own.

"HERE!" - I shouted in desperation. Here here here.

Is there anyone...anyone,anyone,anyone

here here here

Is there anyone here? Anyone, here here here.

Is there anyone there? There there here.

Where they're there here they're where there here.

I have been involved in slams before.  I am also comfortable reading my own poetry. It would actually be an honor.:)

Comment by The_Laowai on May 15, 2013 at 2:50pm

Here's the location. 300 Shuidian Lu, Hongkou Football Metro Stadium (line 8, line 3, line 4).... Building 12, room 101.

We have a location, but the promotion is all you. Use douban, use shanghaistuff, use your phone, use momo, use wechat, find people and bring them to this poetry group, and then we'll start to get confirmations for who will go to a slam. Then we will decide what time.

Get me twenty people that want to slam, and I will host your slam. You'll have seats, loud speakers, and an experienced party host to actually run the event. Find me 40 people, and I will spend 400 RMB on beer. Find me 50 people, and I will add 500 RMB just for food.

Just find twenty people, and this will happen. I used to promote a lot of events by myself, but I'm kinda tired of promoting. Now I'm just going to host. You promote. Find twenty people and this will happen.

Does anyone have material good for a slam? If you are uncomfortable performing by yourself, maybe someone else can read your material for you. Let's get involved. This is our group.

Comment by The_Laowai on May 15, 2013 at 2:34pm

Has anybody in this group ever slammed before?

Comment by The_Laowai on May 15, 2013 at 2:34pm

Darcy, can you use douban to help advertise it? Typically, one gets about .05% response rate when advertising anything, so if we want 20 people, that requires about 4,000 people to know about it.

Comment by Darcy R Fisher on May 13, 2013 at 11:45am

That sounds like a lot of fun lets do it> Lets set up a Poetry slam:)

Comment by The_Laowai on May 13, 2013 at 5:46am

I got a loudspeaker system. how about we get twenty-some people together and have a POETRY SLAM?! - If you want a poetry slam, say something now and be counted.
