Evening of Inspired Leaders brings together exceptional leaders from diverse fields to read a favorite poem and reflect on its connection to their life and work. Our fourth Evening of Inspired Leaders kicks off Mass Poetry's 10th anniversary year and will lift your spirits, inspire, and delight you! Purchase your tickets below, and stay tuned for information on this year's participants. 

Evening of Inspired Leaders is more than an inspiring program. It is also Mass Poetry's biggest fundraiser, allowing us to produce our dynamic roster of year-round programs that broaden the audience for poetry and support poets and poetry in Massachusetts. Our work includes Poetry on the T, the annual Massachusetts Poetry Festival, Student Day of Poetry Festivals, Raining Poetry, and more.
