A Celebration of the Salem Poetry Seminar

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Each June, the Salem Poetry Seminar brings together selected Massachusetts college students with others who share their obsession with words for five days of intense workshopping, drafting, and evening readings at the historic Salem Athenaeum. Students submit a selection of their work and are chosen to dig deep into their practice and to meet literary co-conspirators. The Seminar began in 2000, and has taken place six times since. For many SPS participants, their identity as Poet took form during this residency. Come hear what the seminar poets are up to today in a fun marathon reading in the place where it all began!
