No matter where you are on earth, you are welcome to join this writing experiment which explores writing in an altered, undrugged consciousness: a hypnogogic/hypnopompic state. HOW TO PARTICIPATE IN THE 2014 3:15 EXPERIMENT:

Begin at 3:15 AM on August 1 (or whenever you can join!). Continue each day until August 31.
You may write any length, style, form, content, voice, rhythm, etc.
DO NOT EDIT your work. This is raw stuff, baby. That’s part of the experiment. You are welcome to edit, collage, break apart the poems later for whatever purpose you choose, but please SHARE THE RAW STUFF with us on the website after the experiment.
(Optional) Do not read what you have written until the month is over, except to skim the work to make sure everything is legible.
TIP: do not use a felt tip pen unless you don’t care about ink stains on your bed. Many a poet has fallen asleep in the middle of writing.
If you can help it, don’t even get out of bed! The point is to ride that dream state, that precarious point between sleeping and waking and sleeping.

Then come by our camp to share your writing! Read on the Big TV Set or in the Dome of the Space Wanderer.

If you're up at 3:15am, stop by our camp, be inspired by the otherworldly artwork, and write!
