The KGB Monday Night Poetry Series post-AWP open mic competition is tonight. The rules are simple: all poets read for 3 minutes 30 seconds; judging is by blind ballot. The winner receives a 10 minute reading slot in the Fall '15 season with the pairing of his / her choosing + a KGB MONDAY NIGHT POETRY tee-shirt and free drinks for the evening. It's a great way to get heard. Past winners Lily Goderstad, Spencer Everett, and Chelsea Whitton have read with the likes of Billy Collins, Geoffrey G. O'Brien, Joshua Beckman, Rusty Morrison, George Green, and Camille Rankine.
