The Loom (Zoom) – Poetry in Harrisville
co-hosted by Toadstool Books
Hot off the press, three poets with brand new books from Four Way Books coming to us by Zoom.
Feb. 28, 2021. at 4:30 PM Eastern
To Join: www.toadbooks.com/loomzoom
Kevin Prufer, The Art of Fiction
“…traces the political gambit of Fake News and the role of the imagination in our self-understanding (whether it’s cogent or delusional)
Angela Narciso Torres, What Happens is Neither
“…approaches motherhood, aging and mourning …Torres considers what it means to leave a mark, vanish, and stay in one place.”
Reginald Gibbons, Renditions
“Renditions poses the idea that all writing is an act of translation…These poems allow us to reimagine the borders of language and revel in sharing the ‘underthoughts that we can sense: desire, love, pain and fervor.’”
Poet Arisa White, with Dara Wier
hosted by Gibson’s Bookstore
Tuesday, March 9th, 2021, 7pm Eastern.
Online via Zoom. Registration required (tickets by donation, $0-$20): https://www.eventbrite.com/e/136832578927/
Details: Join Gibson’s Bookstore for a virtual night of verse as poet Arisa White presents her new collection, Who’s Your Daddy; A lyrical, genre-bending coming-of-age tale featuring a queer, Black, Guyanese American woman who, while seeking to define her own place in the world, negotiates an estranged relationship with her father. She is joined in reading by poet Dara Wier, whose next collection of poems, Tolstoy Killed Anna Karenina, is due out from Wave Books in 2021.

New England Poetry Club
NEPC is a poets’ association founded in 1915 by Amy Lowell, Robert Frost, and Conrad Aiken to foster the art of poetic expression. We run the oldest poetry reading series in the country. We offer an ongoing writing workshop open to all members. We sponsor awards and contests to encourage and recognize poetic achievement. And we look for new creative ways to foster understanding and love of poetry.
No current workshops to display. If you are conducting or know of any workshops that are upcoming, please let us know by following the instructions at the top of the page. Thank you!
Contests / Submissions
Writing the Land
Writing the Land is a project that pairs poets with land-trust protected lands.
We are interested in expanding and sustaining the community of creatives and environmentally-minded people. We are looking for poets especially in New Hampshire, Vermont, and Maine, and are expanding to southern parts of New England as land trusts in those areas enroll. We welcome all poets to take part, and are especially interested in lifting up under-represented and indigenous voices.
Publishing Information: We will publish an anthology of the collected poems (with Human Error Publishing, Greenfield, MA) with a chapter for each enrolled land trust at the end of 2021, and we will publish your poems on our website in the meantime. We expect (but can’t guarantee) all poems will be included in the anthology up to 3 poems/land/poet, and we have professional editors who will work with emerging poets if needed
Submission Timeline: We are accepting poets and land trusts on a rolling basis throughout the end of 2020 and if needed into the summer 2021, matching poets with lands as they become available, so it’s important to note where you’d be willing to travel.
Please visit our website www.writingtheland.org for the most up-to-date information and to join the project.
Thanks so much for considering being part of this project.
