Raining Poetry in Salem

City Streets of Salem (Headquarters – Old Town Hall) 32 Derby Square Salem, MA 01970

Using a biodegradable water-repellent spray and stencils made by local artists, we will place poems throughout the streets and sidewalks of Salem in time for the Massachusetts Poetry Festival (May 4 – 6), in conjunction with the 2018 Poetry Coalition Theme “Poetry & The Body”. The spray vanishes once dry, so the poems are invisible – until it rains. Once wet, the area around the poems will darken and festival attendees will be treated to short poems as they walk around the city. Do the rain dance with us!
