Please join us for an evening of poetry with esteemed writers Sam Cha, Rage Hezekiah, Indigo Moor and Donald Vincent as part of the New England Poetry Club's Voices of Poetry series.

Sam Cha—Winner of two Academy of American Poets prizes and a St. Botolph’s Club Emerging Artists Grant; Rage Hezekiah—Recipient of fellowships from Cave Canem & The MacDowell Colony, and a St. Botolph’s Emerging Artists Award; Indigo Moor—Poet Laureate Emeritus of Sacramento, CA and recipient of Cave Canem 2nd Book Prize; Donald Vincent—Teacher of English Composition at UCLA and has been teaching Literature and Research Writing courses at Emerson College, Los Angeles since 2013.

New England Poetry Club was 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. Members of NEPC are poets, publishers, and readers and translators of poetry, who live in New England or have strong ties to the region. 

Voices of Poetry was formed by Pushcart Prize-nominated poet and poetry activist Neil Silberblatt. Since 2012, VOP has presented more than 400 poetry events in NY, NJ, CT and MA. Those events – which have featured Poets Laureate and Pulitzer Prize winners/nominees, as well as those who have not (yet) published a word – have been presented at numerous venues, including Provincetown Art Association & Museum; Wellfleet Public Library; Brewster Ladies Library; The Rubin Museum of Art and Jefferson Market Library in NYC; and The Mount / Edith Wharton’s home in Lenox, MA. VOP has been awarded grants by the Mass Cultural Council.
