Become a Part of a Citywide Poetry Anthology Meant For Listeners.

The Laureate Listening Project.
Saturday, November 22 between 10 am and 5 pm.
StoryLab, Main Library
All ages

The Project
Lucas Smiraldo, the City Of Tacoma Poet Laureate has launched a program to record grassroots voices from throughout the city in the spirit of poetry. The Laureate Listening Project is an audio anthology that captures the voices of ordinary TACOMA residents who have created poetry that reflects the spirit of place in their city. We invite you to come with the poem that reflects a place or memory in the city of Tacoma that is presented as a poem. Your work should be no more than four minutes in length.

These recorded poems will eventually be hosted at a city of Tacoma website where people may listen to your work and also see the location link to a Google map. The Laureate listening site should launch early in 2015. Several pieces will be put to sound score as well!

We anticipate that the anthology will include somewhere between 40 to 50 voices. You should become one of those voices!

Participation
Please reserve a 15 minute slot anytime between 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
To schedule the slot email Lucas Smiraldo at vanillasoul@clear.net. He will confirm a time slot by email.

Come ready to read your piece. Check in at the lab when the door is open as we will be recording throughout the day. We will have a scheduling list to know to expect you.
