Are you a secret poet who comes alive in the dead of the night, churning your frustrations into prose and then braving the day clinically half-dead, dreading every moment of your hum-drum, unlyrical desk job? Perhaps it's time to share what's in that tattered spiral notebook with the rest of the city's poetry zombies. You don't need to know how to spell onomatopoeia or even know what an iambic pentameter is (although, tsk-tsk, if you're writing poetry, you really should), it's all about sharing, drinking and finding inspiration. The OutLoud open mike free-for-all is held every Wednesday at 8pm, at the Fringe Club, No2 Lower Albert Road, or call 2521 7251. For more details, contact a Hong Kong poet, Mani Rao at firstname.lastname@example.org . If Sylvia Plath made it big through girlie magazine Mademoiselle, who knows where an OutLoud Poetry session at the Fringe bar can take you?
