How To Poetry Chat

Hello Poetteers,

I started #PoetteerChat because I barely saw any twitter chats about poetry. That is starting to change.

How to participate
  • Chats are time specific, so be timely. 
  • Use hashtag specific to chat, so that everyone participating can see what you have to say. 
  • Questions are presented as Q1, Q2, etc. Answer them by using A1, A2, etc. 
  • Engage with other participants. Invite those who may be interested. 
  • Suggest topics for future chats. 

How to host
  • Choose a day and time. 
  • Choose theme or topic. 
  • It can be a one-time thing. If re-occurring, make it weekly or monthly. 
  • Create a Twitter list for those who participate and want reminders.
  • Batch create questions to go with a specific topic. Do it ahead of time. 5 to 6 questions are the average amount for an hour long chat. 
  • Make graphics to go with reminders and questions. 

Examples of what to chat about
  • Poetry Writing Sessions 
  • Book club
  • Bring guests 
  • Different topics of chosen theme
  • Celebrate writing or book anniversary

Stay inspired,

Fida
