Please join us 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!
This Sunday we’ll be joined by a special guest! Our featured poet is Sara Mae!
More about our feature: Sara Mae is a kitchen witch and community organizer raised in Baltimore and based in Boston. She is the 2017 IWPS rep for Slam Free or Die, a 2018 Emerson College CUPSI team member, and a 2018 Boston Poetry Slam NPS team member. She is the Executive Director of the Feminine Empowerment Movement Slam (FEMS) Organization. Her work can be found in Tinderbox, Peach Mag, Breakwater Review and elsewhere. Her first chapbook, Priestess of Tankinis is out via Game Over Books. She believes in the magic of blue bicycles and orange lipstick. If she could go to dinner with any famous person, she wouldn't care who it was as long as there was Old Bay on the food.
Please feel free to bring a couple of poems to read! You can also read poetry by other poets, or just listen!
The space is small and set up like a living room. There is legitimate comfy seating on chairs/couches 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, though we do welcome donations to offset costs of featured performers.
