!! A CELEBRATION OF NATIONAL POETRY MONTH !!
2004 Jan. 29-Feb. 1st.
Hi All You SPARROWS fans. It's that time again.
The list of poets is huge again this year. Bios will soon be posted on the Web Page www.sparrowspoetry.com
New this year, is a theme! "CREATION SPEAKS"
Check it out. There are 14 different workshops you can attend and the Saturday night show is more experimental with original music by Pamela Robinson, a bunch of dancers, audience participation, great lighting and some photos. Poets of course will be there too, 18 poems, but the poets will sometimes be off-stage, sometimes in costume, so don't expect the same old show.
Friday night has a big line-up of new poets and groups. Bongo Billy's is the headquarters this year, so if you get to town and want to find out where to go and how to get there, you will find someone downstairs at Bongo Billy's Salida Cafe.
All the information you need is on the web site. Look forward to another Poetry Performance Love Fest. Thanks for all of your support in the past.
Poetry, passion, performance and creation,
