September 29: Lissa Piercy Features

Stone Soup Poetry meets from 8-10 p.m. every Monday at the Out of The Blue Art Gallery at 106 Prospect Street with an open mike sign-up at 7:30 p.m. On September 29, Stone Soup continues its focus on the group Flatline Poetry with the final single-member feature, Lissa Piercy, before all four members perform on the same stage at Stone Soup on October 27.

Lissa Piercy is a Boston based performance poet whose favorite thing to do is collaborate with other performers. She is a member and co founder of Flatline Poetry, winner of the 2013 Poetry Award for Best Poetry Group, and a member of the 2014 Lizard Lounge Poetry Slam Team. In addition, Lissa is a MassLEAP trained teaching artist and the creator of PWP (Performance With Purpose), a conference that brings together college students across Boston for workshops and dialogue around the idea that performance can facilitate change and action. Lissa's passion for poetry has brought her to stages across New England and beyond, including an open mic she hosts at the Opportunity Collaboration conference in Ixtapa, Mexico.

In addition to performing poetry and teaching, Lissa has joined forces with individuals across various fields to use poetry as the catalyst for conversation within schools, conferences, and even religious services.  Her friends and fans guarantee that you have never met another performer with as much energy, passion, heart, and grit both on and off the stage.
