Poetorium @ Starlite Halloween Poetry Reading Featuring Meg Smith, Trisha J. Wooldridge, & Michael McAfee
October 26 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Please join us for a special Halloween-themed triple feature edition of our monthly open mic and featured poetry reading series The Poetorium at Starlite hosted by Paul Szlosek and Ron Whittle. It will be a full evening of poetry & spoken word starting with a brief interview on stage with our three featured poets Meg Smith (Author of Dear Deepest Ghost, & Straw, Feathers, Bones), Trisha J. Wooldridge, (Author of The 27 Kingdoms Fantasy Series), & Michael McAfee (Author of Tarot Poems) followed by readings by our 3 features, a 10-minute tribute to a dead poet by a guest reader, a short intermission, and then an open mic (with 5-minute slots for each reader). Admission is free, but a hat will be passed for donations to pay our features and compensate Starlite for the use of their space. To celebrate Halloween, attendees are encouraged this night to wear masks and/or costumes and read a scary or Halloween-themed poem in the open reading. For more information, please contact us at email@example.com or visit our WEBSITE.
Michael McAfee, a resident of Millis, MA, has been writing poetry since he was five years old but really didn’t do much with it until he self-published his collection Tarot Poems in 2016. Along the way, he’s written quite a few scripts, both for audio theater and community theater productions. Professionally, he’s a software quality assurance engineer and extrovertedly enjoys talking about projects (anyone’s, really, not just his). He sends a hearty thank you to everyone who’s enjoyed his work so far.
