Mass Poetry: Two Very Special Events

Your Chance to Support Mass Poetry!

You can support Mass Poetry by attending one of our two upcoming fundraising events. All of the proceeds go to support the following:

  • Massachusetts Poetry Festival
  • Student Day of Poetry
  • Massachusetts Louder than a Bomb
  • Common Threads
  • Teacher Workshops
  • Placing of Poets in Low-performing Schools

We can only do this work with you support.

Sign up now!

Robert Pinsky at UpStairs on the Square
March 15, 5:30 p.m., 91 Winthrop Street, Cambridge

There are a few seats left for this intimate evening with the former U.S. Poet Laureate, and creator of the Favorite Poem Project, who has followed his Selected Poems with a new CD of poetry and jazz. (Each guest will receive a copy of his new CD POEMJAZZ). Light food, and cash bar will be available at UpStairs on the Square, one of Cambridge’s finest restaurants. Reserve your seat now. This will be an evening to remember—don’t miss it!

Rhina P. Espaillat, Fred Marchant, and Afaa Michael Weaver
March 23, 7 p.m.
The House of the Seven Gables, 115 Derby Street, Salem

These three great poets will read their own work in support of Mass Poetry. Suggested donation is $35 per person or $60 for two. Donations accepted online or at the door.

If you cannot make either event but would like to support the work of Mass Poetry, you can make a fully tax deductible donation online. Everyone who donates $10 or more automatically will be signed up for a Mass Poetry Festival button that you can pick up when you arrive at the festival in April. That button allows you to attend all of the readings, workshops, and performances.

Thank you for supporting Mass Poetry.
