Porter Square Books Presents: Poets & Pints Open Mic
Celebrate Valentine’s Day by reading your favorite love poem or poem about love or poem about all of the complexities and challenges of love at Porter Square Books’ first ever Poets & Pints Open Mic. As with other Poets & Pints this event will be taking place at the Duck Village Stage at Aeronaut Brewing. Sign ups will begin at 6PM during the normal Poets & Pints social hour and the “Open Mic of Love, etc” will follow a reading by NAUSHEEN EUSUF.
A few other details about the open mic: One poem per person. The poem must be written by someone else and be under five minutes long. In terms of the “theme,” love is a complicated and often contradictory concept so feel free to be creative in what you consider a “love poem.” The host from Porter Square Books will be there to answer any other questions.
The event will feature a social hour from 6-7 in which you can grab a beer and converse with the poets, hosts, and other poetry fans. The formal reading will be from 7-8 and will feature a local poets reading from her latest work and an open mic.
NAUSHEEN EUSUF is a PhD candidate in English at Boston University, and a graduate of the Writing Seminars at Johns Hopkins. Her poetry has appeared or is forthcoming in The American Scholar, Southwest Review, Salmagundi, PN Review, Literary Imagination, Smartish Pace, World Literature Today, and The Best American Poetry 2018. Her first collection of poems, titled Not Elegy, But Eros, was recently published by NYQ Books (US) and Bengal Lights Books (Bangladesh).
