MFA/Mass Poetry: Poets in the Galleries

In fall of 2018 - from September through November - three poets will act as Poets in Residence at the galleries in the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. The workshops will take place on Wednesday evenings 6:30 - 8:30 pm (Wednesday nights after 4 pm, admission is by voluntary contribution). The workshops are designed to be drop-in (although you can stay for the whole time if you like!) No poetry experience is required.
 
Once you write a poem based on the exhibit, you can submit it here. It might be featured online (on the Mass Poetry or MFA website), chosen as a Poem of the Moment by Mass Poetry, or excerpted for a Raining Poetry installation!
