Next Stop on the Improbable Places Poetry Tour

It's all about the hair!

Improbable Places Poetry Tour
Thursday, Dec. 12, 7–9 p.m.
Mower’s Barber Shop
269 Cabot Street, Beverly, MA

A Barber Shop, huh? That’s right, folks. A first haircut, a close shave, a hair bender, a golden lock. Flattop, bouffant, mullet, faux hawk or victory rolls – this month’s theme is all about hair and barber shop/beauty parlor culture. All styles of original poetry are welcome. We’re looking for poems that raise the hair on the nape of our neck or bubble up like a good lather. This month’s venue is a handsome barber shop, Mower’s on 269 Cabot Street in Beverly, MA.

Hey, I happen to have a beauty of a poem about my favorite barber. How do I participate? Send your submissions to The submission deadline is Monday, Dec. 9, so you’ll need to work faster than bangs grow.

I don’t write poetry, but I sure am interested in this tour. Can I still attend the event? Sure! The event is free, open to the public, and you might even get a signature haircut by Master Barber, Jay Mower. You’ll find old-school service layered with well-styled poems at this event. Get your groom on!

The Improbable Places Poetry 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 is selected.

Wait! I’ve still got questions! Just talk to Colleen Michaels, Montserrat’s Writing Studio Director. She’s at or 978-921-4242 x1277.
