Poems While You Wait at IMSS

Join us 1-3pm on Saturday, July 6th to take part in Poems While You Wait!

Poems While You Wait is a collective of poets and their vintage typewriters who provide an unexpected and unpretentious 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 (funny or sad, sexy or serious, big or small), give us a $10 donation (all of which goes to the nonprofit book publisher Rose Metal Press), and go enjoy browsing the museum.

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!

Free with admission between the hours of 1pm and 3pm.


Accessible accommodations include a ramp entrance and elevator. If you need additional accessibility options or wheelchair seating, please contact us at info@imss.org.

Parking and Directions can be found here: https://imss.org/plan-your-visit/
