Cantab Workshop for Wednesday, October 16, 2019 with GennaRose Nethercott: Monster Lab

Arrive in advance of tonight’s event 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 all levels of writers and performers who wish to contribute to the night’s feeling of community.

Workshop leader GennaRose Nethercott is a widely published poet, lyricist, Vermonter, and winner of the 2017 National Poetry Series. Learn more about GennaRose, who will also be the featured poet for the night, at this link.

What defines a monster? Dreadful deeds, claws and teeth, supernatural ability? Are monsters villains to be vanquished, or misunderstood outsiders? How, and more importantly, why are monsters born? In Monster Lab, we’ll meet a few of folklore’s strangest beasts– and draw on their power to invent monsters of our own.

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 featured poet, click here.
