A poetry slam in SL. Of course. Why has that notion never sprung to my mind? Why have I never seen a poetry slam in SL before today? Have I not been paying close enough attention? Well, that’s possible. In any case, there’s a poetry slam tonight, and I think it’s a swell idea. And it’s hosted by the ever-energetic Ina Centaur.

Sayeth the blurb:
“Open mic poetry SLAM in a rustic waterfall-brick garden on the ground floor beneath the famous Warehouse Grove Gallery.

Random audience members will be chosen to judge the art of poetry on a scale of 1 to 10. The top scorers will battle head to head in a totally spontaneous impromptu grand finale. Come to read or sprout words outta yer mouth — or for laughs!”

Tonight — 5:30 to 8:30pm slt.

What makes a good novel? What makes it satisfying, meaningful, or engaging? Whether you’re a writer or a reader (or both!), come on by the Benicia Hill Community Center and talk about what it is about the novels you love that make them so great. Benicia Hill Community Center, Wednesday, 8pm SLT.

(This topic, by the way was suggested by a participant at a past BHCC discussion, but I seem to have forgotten who it was. If it was you, let me know!)

Looks like Ina Centaur is making it easy for people in different time zones to attend the sLiterary Writing and Art Info Meeting. There’s an hour scheduled at 4pm and another at 9pm (SLT both). Here’s the blurb:

“sLiterary (http://sLiterary.com) is a new quarterly ezine dedicated entirely to stories set in the reality of Second Life. sLiterary will be published both inworld in SL as well as on the web at sLiterary.com, which will also feature quarterly art portfolios — some of which will be displayed in sLiterary’s in-world art gallery, free of charge.

“Come to this Info Meeting to discuss your story ideas, meet writing buddies, and find out more about sLiterary.”

If you’re a writer, I strongly recommend attending this event.
