We are thrilled to unveil a brand new Get to know our team, our programs, our partnersupcoming events across the state, and more. Here are some of our favorite features and pages:

Our new statewide poetry calendar is on its way to being rife with readings across the state. Create a profile by clicking "sign up," then add events to your personalized calendar and get email reminders of what you want to attend. (If you regularly host poetry events in MA and want to be authorized to add events to the calendar, please contact us.)

• Massachusetts Poet Database
In response to several inquiries regarding a database of poets in the state who are available for readings or consideration for various honors, we are creating a database of Massachusetts poets. Please, go forth and create your entry!

• Forthcoming: New Books by Massachusetts Poets
In an effort to promote Massachusetts poets with new books year-round (rather than just at our popular festival reading each year) we will be devoting a page of our website to new books by Massachusetts poets.
