The 24 HOUR POETRY PARTY is one of the most ambitious poetry experiments ever attempted. The entire event will take place online at LitKicks.com during the course of a single day and night. Seeded with original poems, writings and koans by a number of renowned poets, participants all over the world will join in the spontaneous composition of a single epic "real-time poem" describing 24 hours in the life of planet Earth.
Please join us at LitKicks.com between July 23 12 noon and July 24 12 noon (Eastern Standard Time) to stretch your poetic skills, celebrate the 10th anniversary of the world's best literary website, and create poetry history.
