Improbable Places Poetry Tour with a Chocolaty Twist

October 8, 2013

Tuesday, Oct. 22, 7 – 9 pm
Winfrey’s Fudge and Chocolates
115 Cabot 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 a Chocolate Factory: Winfrey’s Fudge and Chocolates on 115 Cabot Street in Beverly.

A Chocolate Factory, huh? That’s right, folks. Things may have gone better for Agustus Gloop and Veruca Salt if Willy Wonka had employed poets. This month’s tour stop celebrates the chewy center of a poem, the cream and butter of language, a sweet tooth, and a taffy pull. Poems will be hand dipped, dusted in sugar and they will leave you satisfied.

Hey, I happen to have a poem of this flavor. How do I participate? Send your submissions to [email protected]. The submission deadline is Thursday, Oct. 17, so you’ll need to work faster than Lucille Ball in a chocolate factory.

I don’t write poetry, but I sure am interested in this tour. Can I still attend the event? Sure! Think of it as our heart-shaped sampler box of poetry just for you. The event is free, open to the public, and you will even get to see the chocolate makers in action.

Questions? Just talk to Colleen Michaels, Montserrat’s Writing Studio Director at [email protected] or 978.921.4242 x1277. And no, there is no chocolate waterfall…..yet.
