Improbable Places Poetry Tour at Cityside

November 14, 2012

Hungry for some poetry this November?

Montserrat College of Art’s Improbable Places Poetry Tour will be serving up some tasty poems about the service industry: back of the house, front of the house, line cooks, the hostess station and your friendly wait staff! And food, glorious, food: Adam and Eve on a raft, mom’s meatloaf or that bottomless cup of coffee.

Thursday, Nov. 15, 7 – 9 pm

275 Cabot St. Beverly
Dinner is at 6 pm
Free and open to the public!

Special guest, Buffalo, NY poet, Sara Ries, will also be contributing to the tour this month!

Ries is an MFA graduate in poetry from Chatham University. Her work has appeared in The Buffalo News, Artvoice, The Trident, Empower, Tangent, Elm Leaves, Writer’s Compass and Broadside. Click here to read one of her poems inspired by the diner that her parent’s run in Buffalo.

Questions? Contact Montserrat’s Writing Studio Director, Colleen Michaels at [email protected] or 978-969-2301and in the Writing Studio, located at 238 Cabot Street.

The tour is Montserrat’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.

This month there will be a Blue Plate Special at the Cityside Diner!
