The Mount
2 Plunkett Street

As of March 16, The Mount has canceled all public events through May 8, including this event. We are working with WordxWord to reschedule for later in the season. Our hope is to announce a new date in the near future.

In collaboration with WordxWord join us for a roaming performance of a poem composed and read by 100 poets especially for you. Using the exquisite corpse framework, in small groups, the audience will traverse The Mount listening to 100 very short poems, created by 100 poets, performed in quick succession. Please register in advance for this free event noting your start time, groups will start in 15 minute increments.
