Poets, contact me ASAP at firstname.lastname@example.org, to let me know you play on performing. There will not be a single poetry stage this year; poets will be filtered between musical acts throughout the day. Depending on the stages and musical acts and the changeover, poets will perform between two and five poems per slot.
1) This will give poets more freedom to see the rest of the festival as the only need to be at specific stages at their specific times.
2) It allows poets to come and go from the festival as they please. If you work late or work early, we can accommodate your schedule.
3) This offers multiple performance opportunities.
If you want to perform, give me a heads up. Poets will be welcome to show up and perform the day of GumptionFest, but these slots will fill up quickly. If I have a heads-up, I can save you a slot.
