The Improbable Places Poetry Tour’s Next Stop:

Wayne’s World of Automotive Services
126 Park Street, Beverly

Monday, Oct. 1, 7 – 9 pm

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’s venue is Wayne’s World of Automotive Services!

A garage, huh? That’s right, folks. The cars might be up on the lift, but the humming engine will come from the poets. A Pinto persona poem, an ode to an mechanic, hydraulic suspension or safety child locks – all makes and models welcome. Think of words as vehicles and poems as spark plugs.

Hey, I’ve got a poem about my El Camino? Can I read it? We are accepting submissions via email at [email protected] and in the Writing Studio, located at 238 Cabot St, at Montserrat College of Art. The deadline is Thursday, Sept. 27. We’d love to read your work!

I don’t write poetry, but I sure am interested in this tour. Can I still attend the event? Absolutely! Come listen and cheer on the readers and get a poetry tune up at Wayne’s World!
