Calling All Poets!

A Poetry Slam, will be held at Mission Bar and Tapas, at 438 North Street in Pittsfield, MA, on Tuesday March 10th, beginning at 8pm. This event will be co-sponsored by The Berkshire Writer's Room. Come as a participant or come to listen!

All poets must be at least 21 years of age (with ID), for this event, and be prepared to perform up to 3 pieces of original work.

- 5 judges will be picked from the audience. Judging will be on both the quality of the poem and performance.

The winning poet will receive a $20 gift certificate from Mission, and the honor of being the featured poet and host of the next Slam, to be held the following month.

Sign up in advance (bwr.smack - at - gmail.com) or come early and sign up at the event.

Time permitting, an open mic will be held after the event.

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
