Closing Up

Saddness this is the true Horror. This is a reading I have been going to for 14 years.

Friends & Fans of the Worcester Poets’ Asylum,

It is with a heavy heart that we announce that, after October 6th, the Poets’ Asylum will no longer be hosting a weekly reading. We are going on an extended hiatus & will return sometime next year, but in a new & smaller form.

For almost 25 years we have striven to provide a space for both new & established poets to share their work. We have presented over 1,200 open mics, over 600 feature poets (& paid out over $35,000 to them), hosted iWPS & NorthBeast, & fielded 15 slam teams. When we started there were no weekly poetry readings in Worcester County. Now there is a reading almost every night. We hope that you will continue to support the growth of poetry in the area.

The Worcester Poetry Slam will be transferring to the hands of our friends…
