Arts in MLT Parks: Poetry in the Gazebo

June 30, 2023 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 am

Join Mattapoisett Land Trust for a poetry reading at our Dunseith Gazebo. Hear the work of local, professional poets and enjoy the beautiful atmosphere of Dunseith Gardens, home of Salty the Seahorse located on the Corner of North Street and Main Street. This is one of many “Arts in MLT Parks” programs organized by Mattapoisett Land Trust that you will see this summer.

Our ‘headlining’ poets will include: Ellen Flynn, Elizabeth Sylvia, Margot Wizansky, and Betty Jean Nooth.

After our poets share their work, we will allow time for a handful of audience members to share work of their own. Please contact Colleen Andrews at manager@mattlandtrust.org if you are interested in sharing your work. Constraints: please keep your poem to 1 page or less, and under 10 minutes when read aloud. We will select 5 audience members ahead of time to share their work. Due to time constraints, we cannot allow for people to share without scheduling with Colleen first. First come, first served via email.

Even if you don’t want to read, we encourage those interested in this relaxing and thought-provoking morning to attend and listen.

Refreshments will be provided. Please bring a picnic blanket or folding chair for seating.
