Beginning on August 7th, Mr. Hip Presents: Youth Reads! will host poetry events for all youth under the age of 18 at the Trident Booksellers in Boston, Boston's last independent bookstore. And we need your help. We need your poets. We need you. This program is free and will consist of four to five young poets sharing their words from 7pm-8:30pm. After the reading, there will be a local/traveling guest poet who will also share poems with the youth and hold a question and answer for anything the kids may be interested in asking. Our guest poets thus far are Tara Skurtu, Andrew Peterson, Harris Gardner, and others that will soon be announced.
This event will run every first Thursday of the Month at the Trident Bookstore located on Newbury Street in Boston. If youth are interested, we ask that they send 1-2 poems to firstname.lastname@example.org or visit our Contact Page with YOUTH READS in the subject line. We will respond and schedule them to share their work/words throughout .
We are hoping to expand poetry outside of the realm of the classroom and really do look forward to the wonderful opportunities that this event will yield to the youth and participating adults as well.
We shall have a hip time. For more information on the series, please visit http://MrHipPresents.com or check us out on FB at http://facebook.com/mrhippresents or feel free to send us a Tweet at http://twitter.com/mrhippresents.
Can't wait for these events.
Yours in Poetry,
Mr. Hip Presents Team
