Please join me for an open mic without the stage, mic, host, and sign-up list. But that’s just a poetry circle, you say? You are correct!
Here’s the plan. Stop by anytime between 7 PM and 10 PM and hang out while we sit in comfy chairs, drink tea, and take turns reading poems to each other.
Bring a bunch of poems to read, and maybe your phone charger. If you want to guarantee yourself a comfy seating situation, show up at 7 and bring me a copy of Titanic on VHS. That’ll get you VIP admission.
The space is small and set up like a living room. There is legitimate seating for ~12, and floor seating for an additional ~5, and standing room/lurking in the doorway after that.
The Endopolis Poetry Room is in Suite 201 on the second floor of 40 Main St, an office building in downtown Florence, MA. To use the elevator, go in the doors under the Central Building / Main Entrance sign. Follow the hall back to the elevator and go up to the 2nd floor. Take a right off the elevator and follow signs all the way down (through a bunch of doors) to 201.
To use the outside stairs, first identify the North building and its exterior signage (it’s to your left if standing in the parking lot, facing 40 Main). There is an outdoor stairway next to the North building. Take it up to the 2nd floor. Once inside the exterior door there—you’ll be in an unheated lobby thing—201 is the door on your left.
IMPORTANT NOTE: To enter the 201 space there are three carpeted steps down. There’s no way around them, and there’s no railing. Let me know if you want to make a game-plan around this inaccessibility.
ANOTHER NOTE: There are gendered bathrooms for us to use in the building, down a long-ish hallway. They are near the elevator.
This event if 100% free, unless you count the optional Titanic VHS thing.
