Improbable Places Poetry Tour: Good Mojo

The Improbable Places Poetry Tour
Begins Its Second Season

Tuesday, September 27
7–9 p.m.
Good Mojo Tattoos
5 Washington Street, Beverly, MA

What's this tour all about? Well, It's Montserrat College of Arts' way of bringing together student writers, local poets, area businesses, and enthusiastic listeners to celebrate the power of poetry and community. Each month a new venue and theme will be selected. This month's venue is the front window of a tattoo parlor. Think Ink!

A poem about ink, huh? That’s right, folks. Tattoo, fountain pen… giant squid? Really, there are so many directions here. We’re looking for poems about your full sleeves and stained hands. Poems about ink blots, printmaking, and, of course, getting inked are all welcome.

Hey, I've got a poem about my giant squid tattoo. Can I read it? We are accepting submissions via email at and in the Writing Center, located on the 2nd floor of Montserrat’s library. The deadline is Tuesday, September 20th. We'd love to read your work!

I don’t write poetry, but I sure am interested in this tour. Can I still attend the event? Absolutely! Come and listen and cheer on the readers and meet the fine artists at Good Mojo.

Wait! I've still got questions! Just talk to Colleen Michaels, Montserrat's Writing Center Director. She's at or 978-921-4242 ext. 1254.

my choice would be a squidward tattoo

mojo - when i lived in new orleans people would come into the botanicas to get their beans - these dried beans, which were supposed to bring you luck and ward off the bad mojo

some of them looked desperate
