Call and Response

December 7 at 7:30P <- note new time
Free but registration required

Poets tackle the call-and-response.

In music, call-and-response is a compositional technique that works similarly to a conversation. In other contexts, it refers to rapid, spontaneous verbal and nonverbal interactions between speaker and listener. In its simplest form, “no justice / no peace” is an example.

We've a thrown out the challenge and asked poets to sort it out - together or alone; or alone to gather.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the live event. New to Zoom? It's free and easy. You do not have to have a camera and/or microphone on your device to watch/listen, but it might be more fun if you do! Poets do like to see an audience!

Poet? Interested in reading? Your challenge is to figure it out - be both voices; ask and answer; create a cleave poem; collaborate with another poet (or musician); leave one voice entirely to the imagination - you’re the poet, make it work.
