Annual Dead Poets reading!
Sunday, October 31, 7 PM
“With an Eye of Newt and the Wool of Bat….”
A Halloween open mic
sponsored by The Poetry Forum
and Ohio Poetry Association
After being interred for 2 years, our annual Dead Poets reading returns
in cooperation with Ohio Poetry Association
with an in-person event in a special location.
Join us at Greenlawn Cemetery’s Green Lawn Abbey mausoleum
for a celebratory evening of open-mic poetry to continue
Columbus’ original Dead Poets Reading & honor the Halloween season.
The Poetry Forum prefers readings of a dead poet’s work, so we hope you don the garb and see if others know who you are
(before you tell us a bit about your dead-poet self).
But this year we welcome your own poems that transcend the veil between the living and the dead and let us sink our teeth into
your spooktacular vernacular and hearse-worthy verse.
Some seating will be provided, but you may bring your own chair
to ensure a comfortable repose—er, seat.
Free Parking. Wine and water available for donation.
All proceeds from donations go to The Abbey.
COVID protocols will be observed, with masks required.
Event is free and open to the public, but space is limited.
RESERVATIONS REQUIRED through Eventbrite.

Registration closes at 5 p.m. EDT on Saturday, October 30.
And don’t forget
The Poetry Forum continues to host its readings
as a monthly Zoom series.
Our next Zoom reading will be on
November 8 at 7 PM.
