A joint project by three local writing organizations to celebrate National Poetry Month - Write Action, the Brattleboro Literary Festival, and Time to Write - Poems Around Town placed poems by area poets in downtown shop and restaurant windows for the month of April, through Gallery Walk on Friday, May 6.

May's Gallery Walk will bring a poetry event at the Harmony Lot, Pick Up A Pen Poetry Station, where people can create a poem on the spot in what organizers describe as an atmosphere of fun and support. The writing station will be available to townspeople of all ages and experience. Prompts and helpers will be on hand.

Folks can share their poems at the mic or ask someone else to read theirs. Art materials, tables, and a sound system will be provided.

This event is part of the “Artful Streets” project created by Erin Maille O'Keefe and is held in conjunction with Poems Around Town.

Site guides are at various venues in town with listings of poets, their poem titles, and where the poems are located. This info may also be found at the Write Action website,
