Response Poem Challenge

Post by benjaminsolah » Tue Jan 16, 2018 1:11 pm

I got an open mic challenge for Melbourne poets, inspired by a poem someone brought to workshop on Sunday.

I'd love to see poets write a response poem to another Melbourne poets poem, whether it's in admiration, inspiration, offering another perspective.

Share the poem with them, and then share it on an open mic. Bonus points if the other poet shares their original poem first on the mic.

That seems like a tough challenge indeed. Did this idea get off the ground at all, Ben?
