Event Details

On September 11, we welcome Martha Boss as the inaugural feature for Stone Soup’s new location. It was Martha’s family who was vital in arranging for Stone Soup and Fort Point to discuss working together. As a longtime member of Boston’s poetry community and the author of two collections (Twine by March Hare Press and Prayer: Fix My Set from Oddball Magazine Publishing), it’s fitting that she be the feature to help start a new era of Stone Soup.

As Martha writes in her bio:

Poetry is:
poetry is a life-saver
really;
read it.
or write it.
or just thinking about.
or don’t
it’s music.
write it ’til it
sings to you.

About Stone Soup Poetry:
Stone Soup was founded over thirty years ago by the Boston poet Jack Powers. Though its origins are firmly footed in the Beats (highlights over the years have included Gregory Corso, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Allen Ginsberg, and local figure John Wieners), the weekly gathering has included all styles of poetry at one time or another. With the publication of a recent anthology and the hosting and recording of the series being carried on faithfully by such notable figures as Bill Perrault, Stone Soup will continue to invite, seek out and feature the most interesting voices in the Boston area and beyond.
