The Bounce – term coined by Coin Appraiser and poet Rich Hemmings, in his York County PA reading Poetry Brew. The idea is:
3/4/09 – THE BOUNCE! a Quaker style open myk!
1) Everybody brings a pile of their poems.
2) Somebody reads a poem….
when he or she is done
someone who thinks he has a poem that SPEAKS to the previous poem
stands right up to read it – without introduction or signup.
3) When he or she is done, somebody else reads a poem that speaks to the second poem
etc etc etc……
We need a lot of willing readers, willing to think about the previous poem – and offer one of theirs that comments on it….. Come and try this crazy wonderful ORGANIC open myk style…..
