Construction, Construction, Construction, it looks like Las Vegas is getting a face lift!
The Convention was held at the Rivera Hotel and Casino, reasonable rates multi-roomed convention area and across the hall were held Quantum Medicine Seminars. The 22nd Annual Convention and Symposium for poets included an open mic (peer feedback and motivation), poets displays (many are published and some had “Book Releases” at the Convention), a Banquet with a live performance from Tony Danza (Great, Great, Great Act). Maybe Tony Danza should have a Rapper (HA!,HA!), and closing ceremony (Poets video and live poetry readings).
Authors like Pulitzer Prize Winner W.D. Snodgrass, Past Chancellor of the Academy of American Poets David Wagoner, Dr. Sheila Carter-Jones, and Grace Caradieri answered questions and shared important writing information with convention poets and their guests.
Poets were also invited to participate in the World’s Largest Poem for Peace.
