Open Mic at New Dawn

May 28 @ 7:00 pm 9:00 pm

Come out to the New Dawn Writers’ Group’s Open Mic. Every fourth Tuesday from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm we host an open mic for writers of all genres and ages. Bring an excerpt from that story you started, memoir or novel. Bring a few poems, or that experimental thing you wrote that doesn’t fit any known category. It’s a friendly, pressure-free atmosphere at the New Dawn Arts Center in Ashburnham. The address is 84 Main Street, Ashburnham, MA.

Fred Gerhard leads the Poetry Workshop, and is one of the open mic hosts, for the New Dawn Writers’ Group. His poems appear in numerous anthologies and magazines. His new book is Drifting to “Hello” (Khotso Publishing), and his first chapbook, Lilacs Still Bloom in Ashburnham: Songs of Spring came out in 2023 from Local Gems Poetry Press. He is also an editor at Quabbin Quills Press and Smoky Quartz. For many years he led a poetry therapy group in Worcester at UMASS Memorial’s Community HealthLink. More about him can be found at FredGerhard.com
