I really really want to enter a poetry/story slam or just go to one and listen to the people. I wish I lived in a more literary city and could connect with more poets and writers. I don’t know if I have the courage yet to go up and share my writing with the appropriate attitude and emotion and…that unexplainable something that makes you not want to do anything but listen to the words pouring into your ears of a real, genuine person.
If you’ve participated in slams or open mic nights and have any tips, advice or ways to start getting into that scene, I would appreciate your input not only for myself but for the other young writers who come to my blog.
Oh and I forgot to mention that I am now a fiction reviewer for the Lux Undergraduate Creative Magazine:):)
