What is guerrilla poetry?
Sit back, watch and listen to a bit of WORD performed by David Loret De Mola during a guerrilla poetry reading in California. Take the poetry to the streets!
Take the poetry to the streets! Poetry to the People! Inspired? Read on. Down below the line, there’s a link where you can send your own poetry video—if it’s guerrilla. Go ahead, give it a try. We’re thinking about it here in the editorial ether of The Woven Tale Press.
[dropcap]F[/dropcap]or me, guerrilla poetry is the act of taking your poems to a public space where people normally would not be exposed to poetry. We do this to spread awareness of the arts by allowing people to interact with our work and see that poetry is not just made for coffee shops and huddled corners of cities. It is not written for a select group of people who only appreciate a certain type of poetry—this art is for everyone. —David Loret De Mola
[dropcap]I[/dropcap]n honor of April being National Poetry Month, ZFG [Zero Forbidden Goals] in collaboration with Sol Collective and Outside the Lines are presenting “(Inter)National “Guerilla” Poetry Month from April 1-30. The crew filmed surprise spoken word performances in restaurants and unknowing audiences on some of Sacramento’s busiest streets. ZFG then began to post the performance videos on social media and invited the internet to join in the fun. They are currently in touch with artists throughout Europe, Asia, and Africa and working with educators abroad to expand the Guerilla Poetry movement. —Johnny Taylor, The Huffington Post
