Kuki, That was a wonder first time stand up act! How brave you were to stand up like that! I'm a writer so I do poetry readings all the time, but I know I've never read my work in front of a crowd of hundreds!
Now I'm thinking of contacting Carnival and seeing about doing a poetry reading when I cruise Imagination in 13 months. Should I just want until I'm on board and contact the CD about doing a reading in one of the small lounges? Have you ever seen a poetry reading or any kind of reading by a published author on a cruise?
