I joined Mass Poetry as Program Director in December of 2015. In the past three years, I've had the opportunity to work with incredible poets, teachers, and students and gotten to engage the larger poetry community - both those that already knew they loved poetry and those who we surprised with it!
Mass Poetry's goal is to broaden the audience for poetry, and we do this not only through creating programming and events that reach under-served audiences but also through keeping the barriers to entry as low as possible. We also support poets and poetry throughout the state, and we make it a priority to pay the poets that we work with whatever we are able.
I've seen firsthand the impact of the work that we do, and I know with increased support we can reach and inspire even more folks across Massachusetts.
