So You Wanna Play? Rules for August’s Nightly 3:15am Poetry Experiment

July 27, 2010

HOW TO JOIN IN and PLAY THE 3:15 EXPERIMENT POETRY GAME!

  • Begin at 3:15 AM on August 1st so set your alarms THIS SATURDAY JULY 31) and WRITE SOMETHING! Continue waking and writing each day until August 31!
  • You may write any length, style, form, content, voice, rhythm, etc.
  • DO NOT EDIT your work. As Danika Dinsmore puts it, “This is raw stuff, baby.” That’s the experiment part of the experiment! Edit, collage, break apart the poems later for whatever purpose you choose LATER, but please SHARE THE RAW STUFF on the 3:15 experiment website once the experiment is over.
  • I recommend you follow Danika’s suggestion not to read what you have written until the month is over. You’ll be surprised!
  • TIP: do not use a felt tip pen unless you don’t care about ink stains on your bed. Many a poet has fallen asleep in the middle of writing.
  • If you can, stay in bed! As Danika puts it, “Ride that dream state, that precarious point between sleeping and waking and sleeping.

Which reminds me–I’ve typed up my 2009 poems and published several of them here, but never did get around to posting them on the 3:15 Experiment website for all to see!
