Well, I was supposed to be part of the MondoHomo reading this Sunday; however, I have decided not to join some of my fellow poets who happen to be friends. This reading has been thrown together in a matter of weeks, and it is quite disappointing. We received information on our location within one week of the reading. Then the organizer sent a flier to the featured poets yesterday…. yes, a flier on Wednesday to promote an event on Sunday. However, this isn’t any Sunday. This is the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend and the Decatur Arts Festival. Unacceptable.
I refuse to have my name attached to something that people claim to care deeply about but only give half effort to make it a reality.
MondoHomo has great potential; however, great potential won’t be achieved without organization.
