Register Now to Participate in Home: A Poetry Reading, Open Mic, and Workshop Series

Haley House is excited to be partnering with longtime friend of Haley House and Boston Poet Laureate Porsha Olayiwola to put on a monthly Poetry Reading and Open Mic series. The theme of the series is HOME. The following text is taken from the City of Boston website. Visit the City of Boston website to learn more and register to attend a reading and/or workshop. Otherwise, tune into our Facebook page to view the readings live.

HOME is a poetry reading, open mic, and workshop series led by Boston Poet Laureate Porsha Olayiwola. It consists of a featured reader and brief open mic every first Friday of the month, followed by a writing workshop the following Saturday morning. Anthony Febo will host the readings and open mics.

The theme, HOME, is born out of our current space, time, crisis, and future-shaping. What does home mean? What isn’t home? Who is lacking home? Now that we are all home so much, how do we like our homes? Ourselves? Our families? What is home, in the literal and figurative sense? Is the body a type of home? How so? Is a poem a type of home? How do we integrate this into content and craft?

HOME is curated by our current Poet Laureate, Porsha Olayiwola . A Boston transplant and Roxbury resident, Olayiwola seeks to create a shared digital space for Bostonians to write and share at the intersection of poetry and storytelling.
