Oh, this is going to be good!
The Improbable Places Poetry Tour
Thursday, March 27, 2014
7 – 9 pm, doors open at 6:30 pm
Eurostoves, The Culinary Centre
45 Enon Street, Beverly, MA
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. This month’s venue is in the well-appointed commercial kitchen at Eurostoves. There will be poetry, a cooking demonstration, and tasting and a cash bar.
That’s right, folks. This month’s theme is “In the Kitchen.” All styles of original poetry are welcome. Like favorite party guests, we will savor those poems that linger in the kitchen. Poems about best meals, kitchen tools, and grandmothers are all welcome. We’re looking for poems that snap like a pea in spring, stir like a wooden spoon, and aren’t afraid to raid the refrigerator.
Hey, what if I have a recipe poem? Or a sonnet cycle about my dishwasher? How do I participate? Send your submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org. The submission deadline is Thursday, March 20 and we are hungry for work!
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 pick up some mad chopping skills.
Wait! I’ve still got questions!
Just talk to Colleen Michaels, Montserrat’s Writing Studio Director at email@example.com or 978-921-4242 x1277.
