Pour Me a Poem

November 9, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Poets Wayne-Daniel Berard and Sara Letourneau are hosting Pour Me a Poem on the second Thursday of each month at 51 Park Street (Wayne-Daniel’s home) in Mansfield, MA, from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. The next one will be on Thursday, November 9, 2023.
Please ensure you are fully vaccinated for COVID-19 before attending. Also, please make sure you park on the even-numbered side of the street, opposite from Wayne-Daniel’s house.
After the feature poet, there will be a quick break, followed by the main open mic. You can sign up for your time slot upon arrival. The event is free, but please bring a few bucks for when we “pass the hat” for the feature poet. If you love listening to poets reading their work and/or sharing your own, come join us and bring your friends!
