Sarah Lynn Herklots is a performance poet who believes in poetry and performance as tools for transformation and healing. She works hard to dismantle her own shyness and fear of embarrassment by telling on herself for just about everything. Sarah represented Portland, ME in the 2012 Women of the World Poetry slam where she placed in the top fifteen. She has been published by Moon Pie Press in the anthology “Passion and Pride: Poets supporting Equality,” Nin Journal and by Resurgo Magazine.

Fullfilling her dreams of someday being Carrie Bradshaw, Sarah spends nights with her laptop as a contributing writer for Jack Tar 207 and DapperQ. She writes about style, self love, breaking the mold and a variety of other glittery things.

This show in our monthly Thursday LGBTQ series takes place at Fazenda Coffee Roasters, 3710 Washington St. in the Jamaica Plain area of Boston. An open mic begins at approximately 7:00 p.m. and the headliner follows the open mic. The show is all-ages and a $3 donation is requested.
