Wednesday "Workshop": Other People's Poems

  • Endopolis Poetry 40 Main St, Suite 201 Florence, MA USA (map)

Wednesday Workshop. Sort of.

So, on Sunday nights at Endopolis for a few months now we have been gathering to share space and (mostly) our own poems with each other. This Wednesday isn't a workshop exactly, but we will do a thing I believe is the central piece to becoming a better poet: READING OTHER PEOPLE'S POEMS.

This event will be an informal poetry circle where we can share our favorite poems and discover new works. Feel free to bring some poems to read that you didn't write. We can also read and browse the Endopolis library, so if you don't bring anything, that's ok!

The space is small and set up like a living room. There is chair/couch 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 is 100% free, but we also accept donations.
