Southern Gothic Futurism Haiku Battle Championship November 23rd in CVille

Ya boi made the championships!!! I have been losing a TON lately at the haiku slams. But maybe I can pull some tricks and win this mega championship and the prize $$$$ arooooo!

November 23rd, 8pm, Twisted Branch Tea Bazaar in Cville. All the mega, epic haiku battling bests from Virginia will be there. Come pay homage and witness the brutality of cousins fighting it out 17 syllables at a time.

FYI Raven changed the champion title from Chief to Champ, which he explains in a post on the facebook event page which you can find here:

Scope my Patreon dudes

Daily haiku are now posted on my Patreon page cause I need money to pay bills yall!

Consider a $5 a month level where you get access to all of my patreon posts. It would make a big difference to my budget.

10 people at $5 a month would allow me to pay off medical debt my family has incurred a little bit each month.

I am updating the posts this weekend with days I have missed, cause online posting can be harder to do than writing on paper for me. But I am taking my paper poems and digitizing them!

I post free things all the time, participate in community events, and do my best to share freely with the world. Lets be real, poetry is not glorified much in our culture. I can’t make a living slinging my poems. In fact I work full time for a construction non profit to try to pay all my bills. Which leaves me minimal free time. I spend a good bit of my free time creating, with words, herbs, food, and found items.

If this inspires you to share $5+ bucks a month with me, my efforts will be that much more sustainable.

There will be more benefits added along the way;; so join now and stay tuned!!

Need Haiku Competitors

Folks – I need to find a minimum of 4 competitors for this upcoming Haiku event in Richmond. I need 4+ people to commit to coming out, bringing 20-30 pre-written haiku (simply a three line poem, lines containing 5-7-5 syllables) and competing. Who is gonna help me out this next event?? May 17th at 8pm at 123 E. main st. Rva aka Electric Nomad Dance Studio. Possible prizes. Your Haiku can be about anything. Also, if you are interested in sponsoring these events, so we can pay the poets and give them prizes, please hit me up. I am not the main organizer of this event but I love the shit out of it and I am competing against Raven Mack in the Life Match, so I am trying to help. This Southern Gothic Futurism haiku thing brings together people to create a community of cousins, it celebrates storytelling, the south, weirdos and queerdos and all in between. It is legit fun and some of the best laughing I do each month (the event goes down in Cville and Rva check it out) email me at mokarnage@gmail.com for info or to commit

Richmond Food Not Bombs serving in the cold

Richmond Food Not Bombs has been serving free, vegetarian meals for over 23 (24?25?) Years now in Richmond. Usually served in Monroe Park, the group has persevered through the closing of that park and now serves routinely on Sundays in Abner Clay Park.

Additionally they serve on Mondays and every night when it is below 40 degrees outside of the cold weather shelter in Richmond. It will be in the single digits next couple nights. Please encourage people sleeping outside to take shelter at the Cold weather/Overflow shelter at 9th and Marshall. Make breakfast at your house and serve there at 5am sharp or come help cook at Createspace on Wickham at 5pm every night if you want to do something nice.

The new art is by Bizhan of Mended Arrow. http://www.mendedarrow.com for more of his amazing work.

The cooksite for Food Not Bombs is at Create Space at 607 Wickham Street on the Northside.

They are always looking for donations of money, food, kitchen equipment, vehicles, kitchen equipment repair or vehicle repair. They are also always looking for volunteers to drive, pick items up, help cook, help clean, and help serve. Helping with promotion is another way you can get involved.

Food Not Bombs seeks to save food from landfills, keep people from being hungry, and work for housing justice. The group does a ton of solidarity work with homeless/houseless people. 

Find Richmond Food Not Bombs on Facebook and get involved!!!
