In August, I lean and loaf at my ease, observing a spear of summer grass. In September we stop at the dry cleaners and the grocery store / and the gas station and the green market and…
then we make time for poetry.
The listings below will bring you right through to Halloween. As always, thanks to my informant Daniel Bouchard for compiling this list.

April is National Poetry Month, which means that readings and classes abound. Here are my top picks:
- If you’re in Cambridge/Somerville (aka Camberville), I recommend checking out a reading with Cervena Barva Press and First and Last Word Poetry at Arts at the Armory. Gloria Mindock’s press is a Boston institution.
- The Boston Public Library holds a festival April 7-10 with oodles of poets and musicians and free admission. Boston’s own national slam winner Regie Gibson headlines.
- If you’re in the JP/Roslindale area, be sure to check out the Rozzi Reads open mic TOMORROW, March 31, 7pm, at Roslindale House, just down the street from the library.
- I’m conducting a one-time workshop at the Roslindale Public Library on Saturday, April 23, 12 noon to 1:45 pm. In my unbiased opinion, you’ll have a great time.
- If you’re near Salem, the Mass Poetry Festival puts the cherry on the poetry sundae with its end-of-the-month conference. This year it’s April 29 to March 1.
Listings follow. All venues are in Massachusetts (USA) unless otherwise noted: Continue reading “April 2016 Poetry Readings in Boston MA and Environs”
It’s a balmy 50 degrees in Boston, which means that this evening we’ll have a rainstorm instead of a blizzard. April may be the cruelest month in England, but February is full of spiteful surprises in Boston. Still, the snowdrifts barely reach our knees and the days are growing exponentially longer. Celebrate with some poetry and some hot tea, while it’s still in season. All readings are in Massachusetts unless otherwise specified.
Saturday, February 20, 6:30 pm
