WAT 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY- 2015 | 8.2.15 to 8.8.15
Sunday, August 2nd through Saturday, August 8th, 2015. That is seven days, seven shows, and seven different venues! All Word Around Town events are free and open to the public.
8 to 10pm, nightly. Our purpose, in short, is to spotlight local poets and local venues. To learn more about how we got started and our mission statement check out the About section.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Each night will include a featured poet (a veteran of the tour who has served for 3+ years) who will perform for 15 minutes. The rest of the evening will be the regular line-up performing their work (from 10 to 20 poets!). Usually there will be a short intermission to allow poets and audience members to patronize host venues, mingle and network with the audience and other poets. The second half is kept much shorter, in order to accommodate host venues, time constraints and most importantly, the appreciative audience members. There is no set order of the line-up, the order the poets will perform in is decided randomly for each venue, so come early and stay late to see your favorite performers!
Every WAT tour event is free and open to the public. All costs associated with promotion and production of the tour are incurred by the organizers. As such, WAT is actively seeking financial sponsorship to pay for printed and promotional materials, advertisement, as well as the administrative costs of managing and organizing the tour. If you or someone you know is interested in becoming a sponsor of the WAT tour please contact us for details.
