Massachusetts Poetry Festival

A lighthouse with the text "Massachusetts Poetry Festival"

Thank you to everyone who attended, volunteered, or worked on the 2023 Massachusetts Poetry Festival. It was great to be back on the ground in Salem, MA with all of you and celebrate poetry! We would like to thank everyone that hosted an event. As well as a huge thank you to all our sponsors who made this weekend possible. Especially the Peabody Essex Museum, the City of Salem, Salem State University, and WBUR. We hope to see you at the 2025 Festival!
