Whether you come to share your poetry or to listen, we guarantee you will have fun and be inspired.

The Poetry Experience will offer Poetry Slams on Jan. 12, Feb. 9, and March 9.

Poetry Slams are light-heartedly competitive events in which judges made up of audience members rate each poet’s reading. GMUHS and Emerson College graduate and published poet Tuck Wunderle returns as slam master.

Poetry Workshops will be held on Jan. 26 and Feb. 23. Participants bring poems to share and receive feedback from workshop attendees.
