The Improbable Places Poetry Tour All-Skate!

February 20, 2012

Good writing is a type of skating.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Next stop on the The Improbable Places Poetry Tour is The Beverly Roller Palace!

Wednesday, Feb. 29, 7pm
130 Sohier Road, Beverly, MA

What’s this month’s prompt? Start with a wheel. Now you’re on a roll. Maybe you’ve got a poem about going in circles, or you’ve mastered the rondeau. I’m sure there are some strong poems about weak ankles and broken hearts. Whether your soundtrack is organ pipes, Xanadu, or the silent geometry of a circle, we want poems that move us.

If you don’t write poetry, but are interested in this tour, come, listen and cheer on the readers starting at 7pm. While you are welcome to take a seat, you are also invited to grab a pair of skates and circle the poets. The snack bar will be open, the rentals and skating are free, and poets are controlling the DJ booth and disco ball until 9pm!

The Improbable Places Poetry 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. Each month a new venue and theme will be selected.
