Poems While You Wait! •Typewritten Poetry on Demand•
If you are attending the gala make sure you get a poem written just for you - it is free and fun! We will have a team of poets at the iBAM! 2022 Gala, Friday October 14 from 6:30pm to 9:30pm in the Erin Room!
Poems While You Wait is a team of poets and their manual typewriters who provide their patrons with an unexpected and decontextualized encounter with poetry. The process is simple: give us your name, give us the topic that you would like us to write a poem about (ranging from specific to abstract with as much information or as little as you’d like), and give us 10-15 minutes. Upon your return you will have a custom-made, one-of-a-kind original poem to keep for yourself or to give as a gift.
