Melrose Poetry Bureau sparks public engagement through poetry, reimagining what the art form can mean for everyone in their daily lives.

Through our community events and tailored workshops, we encourage participants who might not think of themselves as writers to explore their literary voice, connect with one another, and interact with the writing process. Our goal is to move beyond entertainment to facilitate critical dialogue and artistic expression within communities.

We facilitate both youth and adult workshops for literary festivals, libraries, corporate retreats & mixers, and nonprofits.
