*Invitation to Voices of the Voiceless. From NGOMA HILL: I am putting
out a call to poets to see if you’d like to be a part of this effort to
create “Voices of the Voiceless.” It would be a group of poets that take
poetry to the barricades and picket lines and places where peoples
struggle is on going. The idea is to take protest poetry and words of
encouragement for social change to the front lines of the struggle. If
this interests you, please get back to me and we’ll see if we can make
it happen. Please invite other poets that you think may be interested
too. Even if you don’t live in New York, you can
participate w/ur in town. Contact me at http://www.facebook.com/ngoma#!/groups/282460135116188/

Although Donald Weidman’s “Blue Monday Poets’ Society” meets on
Thursdays,  Weidman is quick to point out that the expression “Blue

meet on a Monday. As a matter of fact, Weinman believes Thursday is a
better day. “It gives us time to get over our blue Monday.” Weinman
imposes no structure on the group. He anticipates a variety of poets who
want to become a part of the communal sharing. All interested poets or
those who just want to hear poetry read and recited are welcome.
