Improbable Places Poetry Tour Gets Cooking in the Kitchen

The Improbable Places Poetry Tour
Thursday, March 27, 7  pm
Eurostoves, The Culinary Centre
45 Enon Street, Beverly, MA

This month, as snow continues to melt outside, poets and writers will stoke the fires of creativity at the latest stop on the Improbable Places Poetry tour. On Thursday, March 27 at 7 p.m. at 45 Enon Street, Eurostoves, a Beverly-based supplier of cookware and kitchen appliances, will open its culinary center – usually home to knife-wielding chefs – to poets brandishing pens. Writers and spectators alike are invited to join in the fun, which will include a cooking demonstration and a cash bar.

Montserrat College of Art’s Writing Center Director and poetry tour organizer Colleen Michaels says poets are invited to share poems on a culinary theme. “Poems about best meals, kitchen tools, and grandmothers are all welcome,” she says. “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.”

This stop is the second on this year’s poetry tour; last stop found poets gathering at Mowers Barber Shop in Beverly where voices blended with snipping scissors and buzzing electric razors. The evening included poems about the sensuality of wet hair, the joy of a fresh crew cut and the history of the haircut.

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!
