poem shop

The very innovative Poem Shop, found in the bus shelter of the 45th Annual University District Street Fair (and Farmers' market) in Seattle! A note from the website of the owner-poet:
Poem Shop is an improvisational poetry performance/business, with which I write on-the-spot poetry on a manual typewriter to the topic of your choosing. It is donation based. I perform at art gallery opening receptions, monthly art walks, book releases, author's readings, craft and farmer's markets, weddings, birthday parties, and any other social gathering you can imagine. I was introduced to the concept of improvisational poetry by my dear friend, mentor, and poetic guru, Jacqueline Suskin, in 2009, in Arcata, California. Upon moving to Seattle in early 2013, I took up the art/business full time. Poem Shop is widely versatile, as versatile as the topics offered to it. If you'd like to book Poem Shop for your event, or have any questions, feel free to visit the Contact page to begin discourse. Yours Indelibly, Matthew D. Rowe

From social media it seems that "Poem Shop is going on hiatus 5/23 - 6/29, to recuperate and focus on other writing projects." Waiting to read and experience these new texts!
