Enjoy listening to poetry and spoken word—or share some writing of your own—with Poetry in the Boro on Sunday, July 12.

We’ll be starting at 6:45 so you can connect early and “chat” with friends. Bring your own favorite snack or beverage!

At 7:00, we’ll begin the open mic. As usual, please plan on 1 longer or 2 short poems, no more than 4 minutes. For this format, we ask that you keep your content “PG-13.” All styles of poetry are welcome. If you have questions, let us know.
