The Expresso Yourself Coffeehouse is an opportunity for spoken word artists to share their poetry, stories, and songs. It is held the last Saturday of every month at 7pm at First Parish Unitarian Universalist, Medfield, MA.

Are you up to the challenge to bring in a story/poem/song about this month's theme? One you have in your back catalogue or a new one hot off the presses? Thea has been taking this challenge every month, will you?

We serve a delightful array of pastries as refreshments; some are freshly baked by volunteers. Come and join in the fun, either to enjoy as an audience member or to participate. Open mic readers have 6 minutes to share. Teens and adults welcome. If you want to sign up for the open mic, send an email to:
