As I put together the next “real” MN Mic post, I wanted to take a moment to point spoken word artists who are considering going on tour to check out Mike McGee‘s most recent blog post over on Mike McGee Town (Mike’s blog.)
As someone in the thick of planning a tour for next autumn, seeing this post was heartening, and I wanted to make sure that folks over here saw this preliminary chunk of advice from a pro. Things like “If people are begging you to come to them, [...] go. If you think people need your words in their scene, [...] ask them first.” and “Have an hour ready to go at the drop of a hat.” are really wonderful ways to know exactly where you are in the process.
So go check out http://www.mikemcgee.net/personal-updates/why-i-do-this-thing/ and educate yourselves.
