John Sturm reads Poe's 'The Raven' @ Outloud

This month’s Outloud Open Mike Coffee House at The Beebe Estate in Melrose features the talents of our accomplished orator John Sturmbringing the written word to life, the month honoring the 2015 October witching season with Edgar Allen Poe’s The Raven, while also reaching into Sturm’s eclectic and rich repertoire to share other poems, quotes and prose.

John’s spoken word renditions — pulling source material from the works of Shakespeare to Cummings to Einstein ( and even Sinatra ) — enlighten and delight audiences with humor, thought, philosophy and deep, human pathos.

Open mike sign up starts at 7:15pm — performances and readings promptly begin at 7:30 and run to 9:30 p.m.

Each performer gets approximately 10 minutes to perform poetry, prose, music or other chosen form of expression.

Outloud fosters and maintains a nurturing, creative atmosphere that is both receptive and respectful to all performers and audience members alike.

Every month we meet up in The Beebe Estate’s first floor Art Exhibit Space at 235 West Foster in Melrose { visit for more information about The Beebe Estate }

Free parking is available on the grounds.

Outloud meets on the fourth Wednesday evening of each month, except for the months of August and December { and typically November, too }.

There is no cover to attend or participate @ Outloud Open Mike, but donations are accepted and appreciated as our way to both support local charities and help cover our operational expenses.
