MoCo Underground Writer’s Showcase – 50 Years of The Moose

Thursday, April 20 at 7:00 pm 8:30 pm

50 Years of “The Moose!” The Surrey Street Poets Honor Elizabeth Bishop’s Timeless Masterpiece

Fifty years ago this summer, The New Yorker published “The Moose,” a long poem by Elizabeth Bishop, considered a true poetic masterpiece today. MoCo Underground welcomes members of the Surrey Street Poets as they honor Bishop’s achievement by sharing original work from their new anthology, 50 Years of the Moose: Thirty-three New Poems Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Elizabeth Bishop’s Masterpiece. 

MoCo Underground Writers Showcase is a free, bi-monthly public event where featured writers read their original prose, poetry, and essays aloud in front of a live audience (also known as a “literary reading”). With a special focus on local independent authors, MoCo Underground showcases writers from all backgrounds and experience from grizzled veterans with hundreds of publishing credits, to never-before-published novices just beginning to find their voices—all are welcome.
