Join us for open hours at the Endopolis Poetry Room!
Drop by between 12 PM and 6 PM & browse our lil Endopolis poetry library, network with local poets, work on a new poem, make a cup of tea, snug up with a blanket on the fluid-resistant couch (ask us for more info! it's weird!), type up a masterpiece on the vintage in-house typewriter on loan from Attack Bear Press, spend all your quarters on the Poetry Vending Machine, or simply relax! You're worth it!
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.
