Mass Poetry supports poets and poetry in Massachusetts. We help to broaden the audience of poetry readers, bring poetry to readers of all ages and transform people’s lives through inspiring verse. We are a 501(c)(3) organization.


We love our volunteers! Between now and the festival, we'll be highlighting a handful of them here. If you've volunteered in the past and would like to be profiled, please fill out this form and we'll be in touch as space allows.

If you're interested in volunteering for the 2017 Massachusetts Poetry Festival, to be held May 5-7 in downtown Salem, sign up here. Volunteers receive free entry, a free T-shirt, and an invite to the VIP reception.
