The Improbable Places Poetry Tour Returns!

Yep, that's right. Colleen Michaels is back to her improbable ways with the next stop on her popular Improbable Places Poetry Tour. A drum roll, please ...

Monday, Oct. 1, 7 – 9 pm
Wayne’s World of Automotive Services
126 Park Street, Beverly

This month’s venue is Wayne’s World of Automotive Services!

A garage, huh?

That’s right, folks!

The cars might be up on the lift, but the humming engine will come from the poets. A Pinto persona poem, an ode to an mechanic, hydraulic suspension or safety child locks – all makes and models welcome. Think of words as vehicles and poems as spark plugs.

Hey, I’ve got a poem about my El Camino? Can I read it?
We are accepting submissions via email at and in the Writing Studio, located at 238 Cabot St, at Montserrat College of Art. The deadline is Thursday, Sept. 27. 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 listen and cheer on the readers and get a poetry tune up at Wayne’s World!

The tour is Montserrat College of Art’s way of bringing together student writers, local poets, area businesses, and enthusiastic listeners to celebrate the power of poetry and community. At each tour stop a new venue and theme will be selected.

Questions? Contact Colleen Michaels, Montserrat’s Writing Studio Director at or 978-969-2301

And in case you need a little inspiration ...
