MIT Words

Added to MyNight

Q Theatre

Share words with MIT’s Creative Writing students. They’ll be on the move around White Night recording and connecting the city in language, then as the witching hour looms they will perform at the Q Theatre Loft.

“In a mass of people

In a mass of lights

the Field was lost

and the night was white”

--Colleen Henry, MIT creative writing student participant’s response to White Night 2015


The event will be MC’d by American slam poetry champion, Ken Arkind, and award-winning poet, Tusiata Avia.

*Writers will be based in Central Library during the day writing, and will perform at Q Theatre from 10:00 pm onward.
