Here the 7 of us are in our Twitter form
I copied this from Deb Ager's Facebook Status, but I wanted to share the news in case anyone wanted to join us (9 pm EST, 6 pm PST)--
If you're on Twitter, join Deborah Ager, Kelli Russell Agodon, January Gill O'Neil, D.A. Powell, Collin Kelley, Susan Rich, and Aimee Nezhukumatathil for a Twitter poet party. Follow the #poetparty hashtag. Ask questions. "Listen" to poems. Sunday, October 24 @ 9 pm ET.
Some notes: I have never been part of a Twitter party, nor a Twitter Poetry Party, nor tried to party with so many poets online in any way.
But I'm kind of excited to see what happens. Or to see what I screw up.
I cannot tell you how long it took me to get a *basic* understanding of Twitter. Maybe I was invited because they thought I'd be the poet with the lampshade on her head by the end of the night.
Watch me miss a letter in our hashtag of #poetparty and be hanging with Tell-Tale Heart fans all night-- The PoeParty. Or miss two letters, and I've gone sci-fi with ETparty.
Either way, I'll be there. #poetparty
If you want to follow me on Twitter my handle (seriously, I cannot think of a better name to call it-- and I know this is so B.J. & the Bear -(I've linked that to Wikipedia if you have no idea what I am talking about)) it is "kelliagodon" - Yes, very unique and creative, I know.
Hope to see you Sunday night.
