About The Venue

Stone Soup was founded over thirty years ago by the Boston poet Jack Powers. Though it's 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.

Stone Soup has been held in many places over the years. It's current home resides in the Fort Point Arts Community's Assemblage Gallery, located on 70(a) Sleeper Street, just across from the Barking Crab restaurant.We gather there every Wednesday night from 6:30 to 8:30 PM.
