The Salem Poetry Seminar

(I should have posted this yesterday. Monday's reading was terrific, so I hope you can come out to support this week's events!)

Sponsored by Salem State College, The Salem Poetry Seminar honors 12 student poets from public colleges and universities in Massachusetts by bringing them to Salem for a week, housing and feeding them, and giving them the opportunity to take classes in poetry writing. They also will share a little of their work at public readings. The readings will feature one faculty poet and have brief readings by some of the student poets.

The reading schedule:
