Unwanted Words x Poetry Trapper Keeper: Tortured Poets Department Open Mic and Listening Party

April 19, 2024

🎀Q: What do you get when you cross a Swiftie, a tortured poet, and new Taylor music to listen to? 🎢
πŸ™‹πŸ»A: A night so festive, the super cool bartender at the wonderful Lola Lieven had to kick us out so they could close for the night! 🍹✨

Inspired by the title of Taylor Swift’s new album, Unwanted Words and Poet Trapper Keeper sparked an open call to poets with the prompt to write a poem based on the forthcoming album track title they would be assigned randomly. With less than a week to deliver, all the performers, Swifties and non-Swifties alike (yes, they do existβ€”we like diversity here at Unwanted Words) took these prompts like Taylor takes to the number 13. πŸ“πŸŽΈ

Is there an album drop coming up we should consider? Let us know! πŸŽ§πŸ’¬
