A Heruclean effort has gone into getting the schedule ready for the 2011 Massachusetts Poetry Festival. It's up and available, so check it out!
Dear Poets, Poetry Lovers, and Poetry Readers,
We are excited to announce the release of the schedule for the 2011 Massachusetts Poetry Festival in Salem on May 12, 13, and 14.
Registration for workshops and other events with limited capacity is now open. Workshop seats are limited in number and are available on a first-to-sign-up basis.
We are offering a new feature this year that allows you to create your own personal festival schedule by clicking the + sign next to any event on the schedule, even those without limited capacities. It would help us enormously if you would sign up for all the events you want to attend, those with and without limited capacity, so that we can make sure that we have them in the appropriately-sized venues. Please build your personal schedule, share it with your friends, and make sure that you and they can get to all the events that you most want to attend.
There are more than 125 different poets, musicians, and performers taking part in this year's festival. You can browse through all the participants and events, sign up for workshops, and build you own personal festival schedule by going to: http://masspoetry.org/festival/
We will continue to add information and improve the look and feel of the site during the next 10 days. We have several important components to add including the poets with new books for the sequential reading. But we wanted to launch the schedule and registration process so you can begin your planning.
