Boston Area Poetry Readings for August and September 2015

Keep Calm and Write Poems

Back-to-school season is upon us, which means that Daniel Bouchard is once again sending around notices of poetry readings in Boston, Massachusetts and environs. Last weekend was the annual Boston Poetry Marathon at Outpost 186 in Cambridge. Get advance notice of next year’s marathon on their Tumblr site.

On a related note, the fall term of my poetry workshop in Roslindale begins in late September. Fill out the contact form on this page for more details.
