THANKS FOR WRITING | Next week, that particular milkshake known as American screamo will surely bring some boys to the yard, even if that yard is all the way in Hampton, New Hampshire. COHEED AND CAMBRIA play with BALANCE AND COMPOSURE and the MIGHTY at the Hampton Beach Casino Ballroom, 8 pm; $33. Closer to home, the arts hub Engine in Biddeford hosts readings by DOUGLAS W. MILLIKEN, JOSHUA BODWELL, and two from SPACE’s literary death match earlier in the week (7 pm, 265 Main St., free), and the alt-wellness center Justice in the Body launches a six-week by-donation writing workshop headed by the poets LADY ZEN AND T LOVE SMITH.

with readings by Douglas W. Milliken + Joshua Bodwell + Mira Ptacin + Bill Roorbach
