Notes to a Stranger.
The Original Note that was circulated.
Please circulate and participate.
Apologies if you have already received this.

I'm inviting you to take part in a performance poetry event of a different kind between the 7-14th September.
All activities will be published on the website and possible future anthology.
Your mission is to write a note to a stranger in the sleeve of one of your poetry books/CDs, or a poetry book written by someone else, and to leave the book/CD in a public place for a stranger to pick up.
Your notes will be published in 'Notes to a Stranger' on the National Poetry Week website, as will one of the poems of your choice from the book. Pass this mission on to anyone who is adventurous enough to try it! Please register by completing the snippet below. After the event you can let me know if there were any changes. The press will be warned but the public won't!
