Poetry Partners are other poetry organizations, groups, and presses with which we share a common goal. As part of our mission to bridge poetic communities throughout the Commonwealth, we strive to promote and support our Poetry Partners as best we can, and appreciate their promotion, support, and involvement as well. 

Learn more about our partners by clicking their logos and checking out our Massachusetts Poet in the Spotlight emails below.
