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

RVA Mag covered Haiku Battle!

A nice story in RVA mag about the return of Haiku Battles with Raven Dirtgod Mack to Richmond! Held at Electric Nomad Dance studio!!

I won this first Southern Gothic Futurism Haiku Battle in RVA and earned some much needed gas and grocery money for our family. Raven works hard to get sponsors so artists can be paid.

This is a vital community event. Also please pay artists and writers. I would love to write for money more often!!!

Electric Nomad Dance- New Studio at 123 E Main Street! Spring Signup!

Hey Yall

If you follow my social media you may have seen that I helped my friend Twila Jane a few weeks ago get started installing flooring at her new dance studio at 123 E. Main St.

I am so excited about their new space. I actually am going to have the opportunity to sell my herbal and craft products there in a mini punkothecary, and may even teach some classes. Other amazing people such as LeVar Carter, Owl Rare, and Laura Rettinger may teach Yoga and other classes in the space. And my friend Raven Mack aka Dirt God is going to try the space out as a venue for Haiku Battles in Richmond. This is such a collaboration of great people and has so much potential. Please support the space, as all of us artists an d crafters and teachers and healers have big hearts and smol smol budgets.  This is Twila’s space, please sign up for their classes and for other classes in the space. Richmond is what we make of it, and here is a chance to make something pretty great!!!

From my friend Twila on Facebook:

Twila Jane is at Electric Nomad Dance.

Hey ya’ll! Lots of folks have asked how they can support the new studio space, and this is one of the best: sign up for or share our classes! 💖💖💖 New sessions begin in just under two weeks, and these first few months will be super important for us to have a solid registration. If you and yours don’t want to dance, but support our work, please consider purchasing a session for someone who receives a scholarship from us! 🤓 💃💖 We are also offering a discount for college students as well, so bring your ID for a reduced class fee. Beginner classes are Tues, Wed, and Thurs 6:30-7:30, and an open level class at 7:30 pm on Thursdays. Next week we have off and I’m gonna be working on improving the space even more. See you there?? Please share! Registration is up at www.electricnomad.net/signup
