The Bad Poets Society

Yes! It's Back!!
The Bad Poets Society, a loving and very public reading of the world's worst verse will be convened once again in Harvard Square after a 7 year hiatus! November IS bad poetry month.
This unique event will be held at The Speigel Auditorium 56 Brattle Street in the teeming heart of Harvard Square, Cambrige on Friday, November 9th 2007 at 8pm.
This event will feature the masterworks of Edgar Guest, America's own "Bard of the Banal, among other examples of ghastly doggerl and laughable idylls from sundry aspirants to poetic transcendence.
The Bad Poets Society commences on Friday,
November 9th in the Speigel Auditorium, 56 Brattle Street. Admission is $5.oo
the above is from the publicity flyer from Channel Zero
I will only add this :The Bad Poets Society is one of the most painfully funny experiences I have ever had. Don't forget to wear your Depends.

Wow, November is both bad poetry month and Nanowrimo. November is obviously a key month for literati everywhere.
Cheers,
