Discovering Cape Cod & the Islands through Poetry


  • Free


Sunday, May 3, from 2-4pm


An ArtWeek event—and collaboration of “Calliope, a community for poets” and Bass River Press—featuring renowned poet Fred Marchant, whose poetry collections include Said Not Said (2017), The Looking House (2009), Tipping Point (2003), and Full Moon Boat (2000).

What if every town on Cape Cod & the Islands offered you a chance to celebrate this special place we call home? At the Cultural Center and other sites along a carefully crafted Cape & Islands poetry trail, you will have a chance to read and listen to a poem by a local poet or a favorite poem by a nationally recognized poet that celebrates the diversity of Cape Cod & the Islands—its people, its landmarks, its industries, and its spirit. These open mic events will ask for a “free-will offering,” as in the tradition of a poetry gathering that seeks to include everyone.
