    i) DON’T tap the mic. ii) stick to the time you’re given iii) thank the audience when you’ve finished. That way they’ll know you’ve finished

    1. Speak to the audience, look at them, feel them.
    2. KEEP TO THE TIME.
    3.Enjoy yourself.

    What Maggie Sawkins said.
    NEVER exceed your time slot.
    Be prepared, but be prepared to be spontaneous.
    Read well. You owe it to your poems as well as to your audience.

    Thank you, John, Louise & Jayne, for adding to the wisdom! I think we’re all on the same wavelength!
