Salem State University and the Salem Athenaeum present the eighth Salem Poetry Seminar, a week-long event for students at public colleges and universities in Massachusetts. In addition to the classes on poetry writing, the Seminar has a public component: free readings that feature an established poet and include brief readings by seminar participants.
The Seminar has a devoted group of alumni who return to share their talents. Alumni have gone on to publish 25 books of poetry and to edit several national magazines. This year’s reading features writers such as Brian Brodeur, Gregory Glenn, Joey Gould, Lisa Mangini. and Enzo Surin.
