Press Release: Milk Wood's 3rd Annual March Poetry Fest

We have much pleasure in announcing that this year's poetry fest will take place at Milk Wood Writers' Colony and Showcase from Friday 30th March - Sunday 1st April, 2012.

The poetry fest will embody the edginess and energy that is currently exploding across the Second Life® poetry scene. It provides a 3-day opportunity for some of the best poets to display and perform on one of the first writing sims created in Second Life® - now 5 years old.

How to Get Involved :

There are several ways you can get involved. You can choose to exhibit your work in one of our easels or in the fallen leaf displays (which enable you to exhibit your poetry in simple notecard format).

If you choose the easel route you will be given a special easel with a script that allows several pieces of work to be installed. The viewer simply clicks on the easel and the display automatically changes screen.

In addition to the easel exhibits and fallen leaf displays, we will have readings by popular poets throughout the festival.

We also have a special Book Fayre for artists to display more of their creativity. Be sure to rent asap if you want to take up the offer of our 2 weeks free rent.􀀀. We plan building a stage area for Book Fayre renters to promote their work through readings and our Virtual Book Tours interview.

If you are interested in displaying your work and/or reading please email Harri at

Several people have offered to help build your displays for you so if you don't have the skills to perform this yourself, please contact us and we will put you in touch with them.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

Best Wishes,

Milk Wood Writers' Consortium

Dead Wood Market, Milk Wood (162, 186, 25)
