SPARKcon is September 12-15. If you haven't been to or heard of SPARKcon, it is one of the most creative and inspiring events in the Triangle. For four days downtown Raleigh's streets are literally painted while "sparks" take place with activities from film, comedy, fashion...to poetry! Check it out www.sparkcon.com.
Last year poetrySPARK hosted an open mic contest, featured reading, Spark After Dark (erotic verse) and Poetry on Demand where poems were written in under 3 minutes based on spontaneous writing prompts.
We're open to volunteers who want to help plan and/or participate in the below segments of poetrySPARK or create new poetic activities. Volunteers can devote as little or as much time as they like.
