Mass Poetry believes that words matter. We support poets and poetry in Massachusetts, help to broaden the audience of poetry readers, bring poetry to readers of all ages, and transform people’s lives through inspiring verse. We are a 501(c)(3) organization.
Learn new techniques and invigorate your classroom next year. Over the course of three days, participants will have the opportunity to study the craft of poetry and will learn a range of hands-on techniques that they can use in their classrooms. Teachers can earn Professional Development Points.
“I have lately worked on freeing my poetry from its standard text and confinement to a page of a publication. I have reached back to my years creating electromedia experiences for the observers and have taken an approach that my poetry can be part of a whole experience for people. I am now using my poetry in the form of moving or stagnant projections as part of my new art installations. My poetry is seen on the floor, the walls and even projected in a manner where people’s bodies are enveloped in the writing as they move around the installation.”
