Tiny Writes: A Celebration of Verse, Visual Art, and Community

  • Millspace Center for Art, History & Culture 55 Main Street Newmarket, NH, 03857 United States (map)

The public is invited to attend the culmination of months of community creativity and collaboration!

Doors open at 5:00 pm. A 6:00 pm reading will feature twenty-three writers living in New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Maine. The celebration, organized by Millspace Arts & Culture Laureate Carand Burnet, will also feature notable writers such as current Portsmouth Poet Laureate Mike Nelson and former Portsmouth Poet Laureates Kate Leigh and Mark DeCarteret.

Tiny Writes is a two-part project that promotes cross collaboration with the writing community and the general public. From May to June, visitors to Millspace wrote lines in response to poetry-themed dioramas. These lines were used by poets to create new verse. Additional readers will include Sarah Anderson, Bethanie Beausoleil, Wendy Cannella, Kathleen Clancy, Nicholas Coulombe, Todd Dowey, Amy Fukuizumi, Alison Harville, Matt Jasper, Kate Leigh, Marybeth McNamara, Phil Montenegro, Jessica Purdy, Cyndle Plaisted Rials, Jim Rioux, Holly Wren Spaulding, S Stephanie, Lauren Vermette, Jeff Volk, and Jess Waters.
