About

Poem Space Reading Series launched in 2020 in Somerville MA, and is hosted by poet and letterpress printer heather hughes.

Poem Space hosts in-person readings in intimate locations, fully online events, and hybrid ones to provide access and bring poetry and people together. We also participate in festivals, fairs, and other events with partner organizations.

We are a by-invitation reading series, with events scheduled intermittently.

Each reading will be commemorated with a limited edition letterpress poster.

We will be experimenting with various models for donations, ticket sales, and subscription options – Poem Space Reading Series aims to compensate poets and contributors for their work. In addition, all sales of letterpress prints go directly to the series and those who make it happen. We hope to provide different video streaming and archiving options. It’s an adventure.

Contact us by email with reader inquiries, including links to audio or video and travel dates to metro-Boston if relevant, if you have skills or other materials to offer to Poem Space, for collaborations of all kinds, or if you are a letterpress printer who would like to work with us. We thank you for your patience and understanding of our small operation.
