Like so many other artists & nonprofits with an event focus, much of our work for the foreseeable future is cancelled. For this special online event we suggest that people pay between $10-50, but don’t hesitate to go above or below based on what feels possible. And PLEASE, if you are suddenly in financial danger, DO NOT pay us. We’re just happy you’re alive & able to join. If you’re still earning income (or are just generally resourced), we very much welcome your generosity.

You’re Going to Die: Poetry, Prose & Everything Goes Online!
is an ONLINE open mic event, the communal offering for us to gather during these uniquely difficult times, to witness & be witnessed, to embrace our shared mortality together, to grieve, bereave & honor what we’ve lost & love… while all the while making room for simply being ALIVE.

Sign-ups will be during the Zoom Call, with directions posted when you enter & the list will fill up quickly, so if you want to share, say so sooner rather than later.

And if being seen/heard doesn’t sound appealing to you right & you’d like simply to be an audience member, you can absolutely keep your camera + mic off, & journal or meditate or lay flat on your face (or do whatever you’d like to do to make sure the call serves you best)!

Poetry, prose, music, dancing, comedy, drama, happy, sad, & on & on & on… Remember: EVERYTHING GOES… so share whatever you want. And you don’t have to perform anything; the audience is as essential as the performers.

If you’re going to perform, keep it under 5 MINUTES. That’s right: 5 MINUTES. WE WILL TIME YOU. And YES – NED WILL VIRTUALLY HUG YOU WITH A NEDDY BEAR IF HE HAS TO!

Please contact ned@yg2d.com with any questions, concerns or feedback!
Looking forward to sharing a special evening together…

Mortally Yours,
the You’re Going to Die Team
