Arrive in advance of tonight’s CUPSI Warm-Up for an early-bird workshop at the Cantab Lounge before the show. The one-hour workshop has limited space and begins at 5:30, with latecomers admitted no later than 6:00. This is a generative workshop that is open to anyone who wants to write a poem and contribute to the night’s feeling of community.
Workshop leader Sophia Holtz is a writer, performer, and sometimes-illustrator who has been a member of the Cantab open mic community since Hampshire College CUPSI days. You can learn a little more about the workshop leader here.
Description from the workshop leader: “Fuck-ups!(?): the goal of this generative workshop is to examine and mess with your writing patterns. We will talk about kinds of discomfort & Stravinsky, and write some experiments.”
Cover charge is $5-$20 sliding scale, which includes admission to the evening show. We ask financially stable poets to consider contributing the higher end of this scale (or more) in order to defer costs for others and support this teaching artist’s generous donation of time to our space.
Due to the constraints of the venue, this workshop has limited space; room can be guaranteed to poets who identify as POC or queer. The best way to secure a spot in the workshop is to send an email.
The venue is 18+ and a photo ID is required. For more information on the night’s open mic and slam, click here.
