Invitation: poetry reading on 14 June in Mumbai

The ZESTPoets list has turned one year old, and we're celebrating by organising its first real-world poetry reading on

Sunday 12 June 2005, 5 pm
at the National Coffee House, Connaught Place, Delhi.
(Third Floor, Mohan Singh Place, near Rivoli Cinema)

You are welcome to walk in, preferably with poems in hand. You are welcome to read whatever poetry you would want to. You don't have to be a ZESTPoets member to attend, but joining the group would not be a bad idea either.

We have chosen CP because it is central and accessible to all; and Coffee House on Anand Vivek Taneja's recommendation. Anand promises, "Coffee House is used to impecunious poets hanging out for hours on end and declaiming (usually terrible) free verse..."

So we'll try and rescue the place. You are welcome to bring along friends and spouses. It would be nice if you could inform beforehand that you will be there, by sending a brief email to lists-at-shivamvij-dot-com.

See you there!

Loquations celebrates ZESTPoets

Loquations extends a warm invitation to all ZEST-ers in Bombay; please join us in the reading of your poems at NCPA on 14th July 2005.

14th July: Poetry on the net: Selections from ZESTPoets
(ZESTPoets celebrated their first birthday on June 3rd.)
Various readers present a programme of poems posted on the ZESTPoets list.

Moderator: Jane Bhandari.
Venue: The Sunken Garden, NCPA, Nariman Point, Mumbai
(Entrance opposite the Oberoi.)
Time: 5.30 (more or less) till 8.00.
Date: Tuesday, 14th July 2005

ABOUT LOQUATIONS: Loquations was started by Adil Jussawalla a little over five years ago to provide a platform for poetry readings in English, including translations from other languages. There are about fifty members, some of whom are practising poets, though this is not a requirement. Presentations cover a wide variety of poetry subjects and styles, ranging from Sufi poems to William Shakespeare, from Rap to Classical Greek, or a simple reading of favourite poems. Presenters are mostly drawn from the group itself. Members do not read their own poetry at these meetings. From time to time outstation poets drop by to read their works, and take part in a lively discussion afterwards.

Loquations meets every Tuesday evening at The Chauraha, NCPA, by kind permission.

Membership is free, and visitors are welcome.

For more information email loquations2003@yahoo.co.uk

Hey, great idea! I think I will be able to make it.
One question: I don't have a calendar with me right now, but isn't the 12th a sunday? So is the party on 11th saturday or 12th sunday???? :-S

Will these poems be posted somewhere on the web ? I wount mind taking a peek. Wld have loved to join , but obviously long distance poetry will not be the order of the day :)

i was also thinking that the poems we heard that day, could be shared on your blog or the mailing list... the ones which can be, that is...
