Egrets Reading

World Con Poetry Events

Well, it seems that World Con is going to have four sf poetry events.

SCIENCE FICTION POETRY ASSOCIATION GATHERING: Wed 8/23 2:30 pm
An informal time to get together and get to know each other. Goodies might be in the offing. (This may be cancelled in lieu of a dinner get-together that more could make)

IRON POET POETRY CHALLENGE: Wed 8/23 2:30 pm
It's Iron Chef for sonneteers and other poets. Come to this Bouts-Rimésevent and write a poem with the day's mystery ingredients, share your work, maybe even win prizes.

SF POETRY: Fri 8/25 10:00 am
What is it? Is there a market for it? How do you start?

SF POETRY JAM: Fri 8/25 2:30 pm
Some of science fiction's best poets read selections of their works.

I haven't seen any names attached to these events yet.

It appears that my plans of being able to attend on the weekend and seeing any poetry programming are not going to work out.
