Stone Village Poetry Experience - Spring 2022 Slams and Workshops

posted Friday, March 4, 2022

Co-sponsored by Chester's Whiting Library and the First Universalist Parish of Chester, the Poetry Experience will offer monthly poetry slams and poetry-writing workshops that are open to all.

Poetry slams are light-hearted competitive events in which judges made up of audience members rate the quality of each poet's reading. GMUHS and Emerson College graduate Tuck Wunderle will serve as slam master. The slams will take place at the UU church at 211 North Street in Chester's Stone Village.

The poetry-writing workshops will be led by Wunderle and Nick Boke. These published poets will facilitate discussions of the poems brought to the workshop by would-be or highly experienced poets, including but not limited to those who want to practice their slam presentations. The workshops will take place in the Whiting Library at 117 Main Street in Chester.

Slam poets who participate in all three Thursdays can compete for $25, $50 and $100 prizes. For more about slams, go to
