Mass Poetry Festival

This weekend, the first Massachusetts Poetry Festival takes place in Lowell from Friday to Sunday. It will feature some of the Commonwealth’s best poets and most of the events are free. This is a test-run for the festival. If there is enough interest, it may become a bigger annual event, so I hope you can come out and support it.

While you’re at it, come out and support me!

Hope to see you there!

I've been reading about Dodge here and elsewhere. I'm glad it was a success.

Yikes! Thank you. I removed the link.

Dodge was rainy but good. And the Mass Poetry Festival is based off of the Dodge Festival so I'm hopeful the weekend will be a success.

Do you have poetry/literary gatherings where you live, Rethabile?

When I read "Commonwealth" I immediately think of the British Commonwealth. That would give you heaps of great poets to choose from. Then I realised you meant the "Commonwealth of Massachusetts". No doubt there are still heaps of great poets to choose from, including of course January O'Neill :)
