THE POETORIUM AT STARLITE
STARLITE BAR AND GALLERY, 39 HAMILTON STREET, SOUTHBRIDGE, MA
LAST TUESDAY NIGHT OF THE MONTH 7PM – 10PM
OPEN MIC SIGNUP STARTS AT 6:30PM
(BUT A HAT WILL BE PASSED TO PAY OUR FEATURE)
Welcome to our new monthly open mic and featured poetry reading series The Poetorium at Starlite hosted by Paul Szlosek and Ron Whittle which made its debut on May 28th, 2019. It is a full evening of poetry and spoken word starting with a brief interview on stage with the night’s featured poet, followed by a reading by the feature, a 10 minute tribute to a dead poet by a guest reader, a short intermission, and then the open mic (with a 5 minute limit for each reader).
Poets, writers, and artists are invited to sell their wares during the show totally free of charge. A limited number of tables are available to vendors on a first come, first serve basis and must be set up between 5:30pm to 6:30pm (no sooner, no later).
The next scheduled Poetorium for April 28th have been canceled due to the ongoing public health concerns (The featured poet for that night Eileen Cleary have been rescheduled for November 24th).
Since the March 31st Poetorium was canceled due to the pandemic, we have attempted to simulate what it would have been like in a Virtual Poetorium in transcript form for all to enjoy. Please check it out here!
