In Spring 2021, Mass Poetry will bring back the Massachusetts Poetry Festival, one of the nation’s largest poetry festivals. Since its inception, the Massachusetts Poetry Festival has hosted some of the nation’s most beloved poets from Rita Dove to Ocean Vuong and Phillip Levine for a weekend of readings, performances, and events. Our AmeriCorps VISTA Community Engagement Coordinator will play a key role in planning and coordinating the festival recruiting volunteers to researching diversification and accessibility models to securing venues.
Applications will be reviewed by Mass Poetry prior to the June 30, 2020 deadline on a rolling basis or until the position is filled. We are also still accepting applications for the roles of part-time bookkeeper & AmeriCorps VISTA Events and Communications Coordinator.
