Next Improbable Places Poetry Tour Talks Color

January 14, 2013


Next Stop on the Improbable Places Poetry Tour
Waters & Brown on 13 Elliott Street, Beverly, MA
Thursday, Feb. 7, 2013, 7 – 9 pm

The next stop in the IPPT is a paint store and color is the theme!  It will be an evening of contrast, value, saturation and tone.  In some poems the color could be as subtle as ceiling paint; in others it may be stand out like an accent wall of Benjamin Moore’s “Wasabi AF-430.”

Is gold really the hardest hue to hold?
How much depends on the wheelbarrow being red?

We are currently accepting submissions via email at [email protected] and in the Writing Studio, located at 238 Cabot Street, Montserrat College of Art.  We’d love to read your work! Looking for inspiration? Stop into Waters & Brown for a paint chip title. Surely colors with names such as “Minimum,” “Bella Donna” or “Velvet Plum” have something to say in a persona poem.

Deadline: Monday, Feb. 4, 2013

Even if you don’t write poetry, but are interested in this tour, come listen and cheer on the readers and get a few ideas for your next home improvement project. It’s amazing what poetry can do to a room.

The IPPT is Montserrat’s way of bringing together student writers, local poets, area businesses and enthusiastic listeners to celebrate the power of poetry and community.
