We’ll put them all on our Facebook page and our website, named and tagged. Our staff photographer, Erik Martinez Richards (left), will do his best to eliminate all weird expressions, closed-eye shots, and tongues sticking out. On the contrary, the men will look like Superman and the women Mona Lisa. To some degree.
With two hours of open mic, there is time for roughly 24 readers. If that many don’t show up, we will have a second round for those who brought more poems. That’ll make a nice big album.
Erik is also looking into videotaping our featured poets reading in a studio setting for a CD and our internet sites.
As well as being handy with a camera, Mr. Martinez Richards is one of Poetry Night's organizers and founders.
The event is from 6:30 to 9:30, with live Celtic harp and vocals for the first half hour, followed by featured poet John Tyndall reading, with Q&A, followed by two hours of open mic. The Mykonos Restaurant is at 572 Adelaide St. N., London, with parking, also overflow parking across the side street, plus one block N. in front of Trad’s Furniture. Cover by donation.
The terrace is enclosed and well-heated from above, but in cold weather there can be cool air at floor level so wear warm footwear.
