Shut-up and Eat closed, but poetry can be read or recited by you anywhere. So, like any poem, this event sleeps for now waiting to awaken by readers as I search between sleep and life for locations to recite or read poetry.
We seek space to sharing poetry to continue to grow the Portland poetic scene as a collective group of artists and aficionados started by Jean Richards during October 12, 2016 that began at a place called Shut-up And Eat.
As Jean Richards wrote: We are passionately dedicated to strengthening a safe space community and inclusive environment. To us, a safe space is a place where anyone can feel empowered to express themselves openly and safely, free from discrimination, intimidation, judgment and physical or verbal harassment.
I still believe that. I just have no place, but seek a place or places. Once these places are being found and events will be made once discovered.
If you have a place to host an night of poetry please let me know through the messaging.
Until then I will keep this going for another six months planing an event to read poetry where ever you want.
