Thank you to EVERYONE who came out for our LIVE Poetry night in Yak!  We had about 10 there, and saw some that we hadn't seen in a longggggg time.
It was great fun!  Anyone remember 777Moon?  She goes wayyyyy back.  She came!  Halo made it in, yay!  Mystic and Loner (Russ)...and daisy and me.
Then a few from Yak wandered in or sat in obs to read.   

Next time we hope you will all join us!

I just want to say thank you to Elise and Daisy for a great time last night. I hadn't been in a chatroom in about seven years. I forgot how much fun it could be. Had a blast!! And the poetry was amazing. (Even if I had read a lot of it before.) Just getting to hear the poet's backstories about how their peices came to be was wonderful insight. And meeting a few new friends, too. Thanks again.  :blusmoke G.

I'm seeing double posts, me thinks ......... we did have a lot of fun at the live reading last night in Yak!  There are endless possibilities for the live readings ...... some things to look forward to in the future: 

* theme writing ... poems and avatars theme related
* anyone who has access capability to skype or yahoo voice, can actually have those programs open in the background - reading the poem in voice as it scrolls in the room - truly a live reading (never a requirement, only a suggestion)
* holiday parties
* bring a friend night
* pajama parties (no nude av's allowed, Yak is a family chat)

and the list could go on and on ........ join us each Thursday at 9:00 pm, EST

We had yet another wonderful LIVE POETRY READING event in YAKCHAT last night! 
We  were blessed with the presence and readings of an Epyleptic Trout!!!   It was great fun to have him there!   

We are still missing other elements....(NAMELY YOU!)...

We had a wonderful time sharing the poems from our JUNE CHALLENGE.  It is amazing how great it is to actually interact with
those we have all known only on the boards.  It's really fun!  I hope soon more and more will come!  There were a couple who
wandered in from Yak and shared also.  They are starting to look forward to Thursday nights. 

The hour and a half always seems to fly by...and lots of us linger way after the official ending.  PLEASE JOIN US!
