Massachusetts may not have a state poet laureate, but it has the best poetry festival in New England. Attendees in 2017 are invited to come and be introduced to the current poets laureate of all the other five N.E. states: Stuart Kestenbaum of ME, Chard deNiord of VT, Rennie McQuilkin of CT, and Alice Fogel of NH. This is a rare opportunity to get to know their work as poets and as ambassadors of poetry in our region.
