Massachusetts Poetry Festival Executive Director January O’Neil was right when she said on this blog that poets and entrepreneurs have a lot in common. “We are self starters,” she wrote, “and have a singular vision that we will see through to the end.”
This self-starting vision is behind a poetic enterprise in Pelham this month. A National Poetry Month reading curated by Karen Skolfield (Poetry Fellow ’14) features recent awardees Richard Michelson (Poetry Fellow ’16), Sarah Sousa (Poetry Fellow ’16), and Michael Teig (Poetry Fellow ’08 and Finalist ’16) and takes place at Pelham Library on Wednesday, April 27 at 7 PM. Free and open to the public.
