Imagine . . .
…you are in an inner city classroom, hearing a powerful poetry performance by a local poet for the first time. You feel that that prickling sense of wonder and stirring of the imagination. Your world shifts, feeling the possibility and power of language. Then, you pick up a pen to compose your first poem.
This is just a small example of what Mass Poetry’s meaningful work in local schools can engender. Yet in order to expand our work and take poetry to more students in more schools in Greater Boston and across Massachusetts, we need your support.
