Improbable Places Poetry Tour – The Bridge Stop

September 10, 2019 @ 7:00 pm

We’ve got an extra special tour stop planned as part of the Crossing Water Festival. In addition to illuminating the bridge, there will be a site-specific performance of Lucille Clifton’s poem “Blessing the Boats” involving dance, recitation and music. And of course, poemsabout bridges! The event is free, open to the public, and you don’t want to miss the beauty. Submission info: Bridges are transitions: they helpus cross obstacles, and they carry us from this to that. I am seeking poems in any style that do the heavy lifting of a well-built bridge. Send meyour poems about crossings and journeys. Send me your poem where time isthe bridge, a before and after poem. Send those poems that travel betweenBeverly and Salem. Send your arch, rainbow or catwalk poems. Send me a poem that carries the listeners with tension and compression. Send your submissions to colleen.michaels@montserrat.edu. The submission deadline is Thursday, September 5th. I’d love to read your work! Learn more about Crossing Water at Montserrat.edu/crossingwater
