DIVE into the petri dish and join us in the Poetry lab. Poetry labs take place the first Friday of each month. Our goal is to develop a black box experience that features poetry amidst art, music and multi-media for a broader poetic experience.
The Soundry’s Poetry Lab will feature individual poets the next few months as the Poetry Lab develops. Show up to hear some original poetry and be part of the experiment!
Poetry Labs are hosted by Mad Scientist. Stevenallenmay, poet and President of Plan B Press.
