Poets' Asylum - Wordswap Workshop & Extended Open Mic

Join us for our inaugural Last Sunday Workshop. Come meet up with Shakti* lady Sou MacMillan for a generative** workshop based on word-pooling. Come on out and bring your writing tools. We’ll have the open mic at the end instead this time so everyone can show off their new stuff – and this one will be an extended open, meaning 5-10 minutes instead of the regular 1-5: ZOMG!

*Shakti was this kickass ladies’ writing group the Asylum used to run back in the Java Hut Days.
**That means we gonna write some stuff \o/

DIRIGO

Take two-fifths of the legendary Vermont jam-band Strangefolk and add two of Maine’s premiere alt-country all stars and you get the genre-bending band Dirigo. The group released their debut album on Cornmeal Records on September 13th, and have been enjoying the ride ever since. The album is entitled “Jamericana,” in a nod to the fusion of these two closely aligned yet diverse musical genres.
