Greetings to the performers and writers of the Known World from Lord Alan
An exhibition of poetry, prose, and players will be held at Pennsic XXX on
Wednesday, August 15, from 1PM to 5PM in the Performing Arts tent. This will be an opportunity for poets, storytellers, and dramatists to perform in front of an audience and receive comments on their work from some of the best performers in the Known World.
The day will consist of an "open stage," where all are invited to display
their talents before an audience, and of a table with written works of poetry, prose, and drama. Those who come to perform or drop off texts may opt to receive feedback on their performance from those present--we are working to ensure that a number of expert performers and writers will
be present to assist those who attend. We encourage performers to bring
written copies of their performance texts, but writers are also welcome to simply drop off poems for comment without performing them.
No registration is necessary--stage time will be given on a first-come,
first-served basis. If necessary, we may ask that performances be limited in time (to no less than 10 minutes) to accomodate all who wish to take part. Those who wish to perform may stop by at or shortly before the start of the day to pick a time.
Light refreshments will be available during the course of the afternoon.
We look forward to seeing you there!
