Just 5 Days to Go!

We’re counting down the days until Saturday, Sept. 30, when poets and musicians take the stage for an Open Mic at Old Books on Front Street. Please bring work that takes a hopeful spin on issues of peace, social justice, and the environment. This doesn’t mean you can’t be angry or passionate. We’re simply asking for work that offers a glimmer of hope (or more, if you’ve got it), rather than pieces that wallow in despair.

And if you’re not a poet or musician, then come to listen and support!

Here are a couple of Exquisite Corpse collaborations that were created last Saturday, as part of the lead-up to the big event. We experimented with a couple different techniques and, as usual, found the resulting poems to be surprising and delightful.
