About UsThe Poetry Caravan of Austin is a non-profit founded by Usha Akella and co-organized by

of The Caravan is to give free poetry readings and workshops in retirement homes,
hospitals, and shelters in the Austin area, taking poetry to people who can’t go to poetry.

* After you sign up, an organizer will email you asking for your phone number. It is needed in case of emergenices and will be kept private.
* Consider your listeners when choosing poems. You may read your own work or poems by other poets or a combination of the two.
* Some of our audiences enjoy hearing classics. Rhyming poems and shorter verses are often a big hit.
* Feel free to email the other poets scheduled to read if you would like to coordinate with them.
* Some poets bring copies of their poems to hand out. These are appreciated by some audience members but not mandatory.
* If you have any questions or problems with the sign-up process, please call or email Carie Juettner (cariejuettner@gmail.com).

During the Event:
* Each poet will read for 15-20 minutes. If only two poets sign up, each will read for 25-30 minutes.
* You may fill the hour or leave time for questions, discussion, or audience participation.
* Begin by introducing yourself. The first poet should also say a few words about the Poetry Caravan.
* Read slowly and loudly.
* Feel free to take pictures. However, you may not post photos of audience members on any public forum without permission from the venue.
