Ginny Lowe Connors' new book Toward the Hanging Tree: Poems of Salem Village gives voice to the people of Salem Village and life to the narratives--singular and collective--of that time and place. She does so with equal devotion to the facts and the heart of the story, and with an artistry and craft both solid and fresh.
It's been a while! What's new in life?
A lot has changed, and a lot has stayed the same. Two years ago I was a newcomer to Boston. Now, for someone who has always lived somewhat of an itinerant life, this city has become my home. As of this past summer, I can also now say I’ve satisfied certain Boston-area requirements, including visiting Cape Cod and sampling a number of regional delicacies (lobster rolls and clam chowder namely).
The ninth Massachusetts Poetry Festival will be held May 5 - May 7, 2017 in beautiful downtown Salem, Massachusetts.
The submission period for the festival is now open. You may submit your proposal here. The period will run until October 30.
