Poetry Video

With a personal video revolution that's been ongoing for years now, there is a heck of a lot of video of cleveland poetry out in the world, and being loaded up on the web.

The Literary Cafe in Tremont has held a reading series for years (now they're the host for one of the Writing Knights events).  They have whole pages full of videos, including a page of older videos of readings and slams dating back to the '90s

Poet's Haven has also taken a lot of video, and check out John Burroughs' Crisis Chronicles for yet more, or John Burroughs' youtube channel.

And the Lake Effect Poetry slam team has some video on the web-- check out their videos of the slam team qualifiers on Ustream, or watch the Lake Effect team perform at the Rustbelt Poetry Slam in Columbus.

It's not the same as being there, but there sure is a heck of a lot of video of Cleveland poetry out there.

Thank you, Geoff! I have a ton of video from the past 5 years that I haven't yet gotten online. Perhaps now that I'm doing less hosting I'll find time to do more posting.

I've noticed this too. I'm particularly fond of Lake Effect Poetry - been to a few of their slams over the years. In fact; it doesn't get any views; but I have a Literary Blog on YouTube featuring my poems and more as well. http://www.youtube.com/user/KimtheBwordPoet
