Anyone wanting to apply to perform at a future Gathering should send a short bio and sample of their work (CD is preferred), to:
Texas Cowboy Poetry Gathering
PO Box 395
Alpine, TX 79831
The entire committee listens to the applicants and decides who we can invite. This is usually done in April or May. We have many more applicants than we have the space or money to invite; normally we try to include 3-5 new folks each year. There are also open sessions on Friday and Saturday mornings during the Gathering where performers may sign up at the session and present a poem or song. We remain a very traditional gathering and an applicants ties to the western way of life are important in the committee’s decision on inviting new performers.
