Encouraged by my success in Poetstars last year and, more recently, on the Feminist Review competition, I have bitten the bullet and entered some real live poetry comps. It may all come to nothing but hey, at least I can say I tried. In other news, being cheeky has garnered me a spot reading poems at a benefit for the annual Peace in the Park festival. with any luck, this might lead to a spot reading at the festival proper. I have a dilemma, though - I know the cause is worthy, but I also know that the target audience is debauched. Question: How should I pitch my set?
