The Massachusetts Poetry Festival is this weekend, and I’m geared up and ready to go! If you’ll be in Salem for the festival, here are places to find me:*
1:15 pm – “Because, the Internet” workshop
3:30 pm – Poetry meetup at Howling Wolf
7:30 pm – Headliner reading with Denise Duhamel, Nick Flynn, and Adrian Matejka
9:30 am – “Edna St. Vincent Millay’s Massachusetts Poetry” workshop
11:00 am – “Writing Sound to Sound” workshop
sometime between 11 am – 2 pm – Poetry Carnival
12:15 pm – “From Zero to One” panel
2:00 pm – “Narrative Poetry” workshop with Naugatuck River Review
3:15 pm – either “Flatline Poetry” or “Aloha, Winter. Aloha, Spring.” readings
7:30 pm – Headliner reading with Rita Dove and Richard Blanco
10ish am – Paint Chip Poetry and other art activity drop-ins at PEM
11:30 am – “Found Narratives” workshop led by me! The workshop is currently sold out, but there’s a waitlist available, and it’s always worth turning up day-of in case there are no-shows. Hope to see you there!
1 pm – either Rita Dove reading or “Shakespeare’s *itches, a Poetry Musical”
2:30 pm – Headliner Jorie Graham and Stephen Burt reading
If I’m not where I’ve said I’ll be, I may be hanging out at the art activities, or walking down to the waterfront for a brain break, because when the ocean’s that close, why not take it in?
*As with any festival kind of event, a schedule is more of a guideline than actual rules. I reserve the right to be a poetry pirate and sail off on a different tack if that’s how the wind blows on the day. 🙂
