We’re making some changes at the Asylum (duh!) and in keeping with last month’s new workshop series, we’re having...another workshop! The last week of every month, the Asylum will be bringing both local and more national poets to lead an hour long workshop before the show. This week, Sarah Sapienza will lead a workshop, focusing on lying through metaphor. After the 5:30-6:30 workshop, doors will open to the general public.

Poets' Asylum - Youth Slam Finals (Schedule Change, See Note)

We’re awfully close to Valentine’s Day, people. But we’re not there yet and, let’s be real - there’s plenty of love poetry but we at the Poet’s Asylum believe that there’s a dearth of poems about plum pudding, the birth of Abraham Lincoln or Barbie - 2/12 is the first day that the old girl ever went on sale (and 2/12 is also the national day for and the birthday of, respectively).
