The P.O.E.T., who is committed to investing in the class, will automatically be dubbed as a faithful member of the poetry club! Here, the inductees, soon known as P.O.E.T.s, will mesh together everything they’ve learned, to share with the next batch of amateur P.O.E.T.s. We will also take on a pledge, and have a special ceremony for the inductees!
One of the duties of the new members is to recruit another person to take the class, and throughout the entire grapevine process. There will be monthly club dues which will go towards member T-shirts, the Grapevine Formal Dance, group gatherings/picnics, materials for the group, and it would even be donated to various charities. When a P.O.E.T. refers a new member who’s faithful to the class, his/her club dues will be reduced. He or she will teach a class or two to prove their skills and knowledge.
The P.O.E.T.s will become assistants or staff members, who will help overlook incoming prospects. They will spread the knowledge that poetry is the way of life, a language that could be more interesting than their everyday dialect. It is their duty to focus the lens of those who aren’t fond of or do not understand poetry as an art. It will be the P.O.E.T.s job to ensure this art has a better reputation than what it has, especially for generations to come.
Being a member of the poetry club also means community involvement. We invite the community to listen and be involved in a monthly poetry reading and recitation, which should serve as an attraction. We’ll also go out into the community entertain, do readings, and promote poetry.
The Grapevine Formal Dance is an opportunity for club members to invite the community, friends, and family. It will also assist in bigger projects that will promote the organization. It’s a chance to create revenue, and to show off their new found talent as P.O.E.T.s!
It is imperative and mandatory for anyone who’s apart of the club, to take the Burst poetry class to gain insight and obtain the skills to pass on their knowledge in order to attract others.
The club has benefits for its members as well. P.O.E.T.s will receive percentages off on services offered!
