This coming Friday is the 2009 Albany Word Fest, hosted by Albany Poets. It’s an annual event held every April.
Part of this year’s Word Fest is a 12-hour long open mic held at the UAG Gallery on Lark. It starts at 7pm Friday night, ends 7am Saturday morning. Each reader gets 10-15 minutes. The sign-up is available online. I procrastinated on signing up, and then got talked into the 2:00-2:15am slot. Yeah, two in the morning. So if you’re crazy, stop by. I’ll be there.
