Pecha Kucha

This Thursday I'm very pleased to be involved in an unusual event called Pecha Kucha. Basically the format of the night is that each presenter is given 6 minutes and 20 frames of images each showing for twenty seconds each. The night first started in Tokyo. I think for the most part the presenters are visual artists or architects, so I think it's unusual for a writer to get the gig. I will be presenting in tandem with the amazing Beck Wheeler. A wonderful visual artist who has been turning my poems into incredible works of art. I'll be reading my story Disappointment is the Evil Bunny of Misery's best friend to a slide show of Beck's art work.
Below are more details of the event.

Pecha Kucha is a night of creative presentation!

eight creative types get 6 minutes of time to present their ideas, designs, stories or artwork over a
slideshow of 20 frames.

20 seconds a frame = six minutes of fame.
