Poem Town Bradford

Poem Town Bradford

A National Poetry Month Celebration

Poetry Circle will meet Wednesday, February 7th from 4-5:30. Bring your poems or bring yourself!

Poem Town is a town wide event that displays poetry on local business storefronts as a way to celebrate National Poetry Month in April.  With poems displayed in our downtown windows, it is our goal to make poetry accessible to our community, and to inspire new readers and writers of poetry.

We would like to invite poets of all ages to submit their poems for display. Please send any submissions to poemtown@bradfordvtlibrary.org.
