June 1, 2013

    479035_10151869657863626_754409761_o Join an epic conversation… an experiment in writing in altered states of consciousness!

By exploring hypnogogic and hypnopompic states (between sleeping and waking), The 3:15 Experiment challenges writers, provides insight into the collective sleeping/dreaming mind, and creates a conversation through an unusual ritual that is individual yet collaborative, disciplined yet open. Wherever you are on the globe, join this menagerie of poets in the experiment June 2 at 3:15am and 3:15pm Pacific Standard Time. Or join us in Seattle for these special 20th Anniversary 3:15 Experiment Events!

HOW TO PLAY June 2 and August 2013
:

  • Begin at 3:15 AM on August 1st (so set your alarms on JULY 31). Continue each day until August 31.
  • You may write any length, style, form, content, voice, rhythm, etc.
  • DO NOT EDIT your work. This is raw stuff, baby. That’s part of the experiment. You are welcome to edit, collage, break apart the poems later for whatever purpose you choose, but please SHARE THE RAW STUFF with the rest of the group here or on the website once the experiment is over.
  • (Optional) Do not read what you have written until the month is over, except to skim the work to make sure everything is legible.
  • 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 help it, don’t even get out of bed! The point is to ride that dream state, that precarious point between sleeping and waking and sleeping.
