The third annual Amherst Poetry Festival and the Emily Dickinson Poetry Marathon return October 1 through 4, turning downtown Amherst into a must-visit destination for poetry lovers.
The Amherst Poetry Festival, sponsored by the Emily Dickinson Museum and the Amherst Business Improvement District, takes poetry off the page and into downtown Amherst, where literary history and contemporary creativity live side by side. Anchored by the annual Emily Dickinson Poetry Marathon, the Festival connects the region’s rich poetic tradition with some of today’s most creative poets.
