Some online friends from antiweb run the New York-based poetry collective LitKicks.com, which has been doing cool readings, gatherings and publications for a decade now. To celebrate their 10th anniversary, they’re hosting a massive, timezone-busting, internet-wide collaborative poetry generation happening next weekend (Friday 23 / Saturday 24):
The 24 HOUR POETRY PARTY is one of the most ambitious poetry experiments ever attempted. The entire event will take place online at LitKicks.com during the course of a single day and night. Seeded with original poems, writings and koans by a number of renowned poets, participants all over the world will join in the spontaneous composition of a single epic “real-time poem” describing 24 hours in the life of planet Earth.
