Mass Poetry, a nonprofit poetry organization headquartered in Boston, Massachusetts, seeks an expert manager and experienced educator with a passion for poetry to serve as its full-time Education Director.
Mass Poetry believes that words matter. We support poets and poetry in Massachusetts, help to broaden the audience of poetry readers, bring poetry to readers of all ages, and transform people’s lives through inspiring verse. From hosting the Massachusetts Poetry Festival to delivering poets into schools for residencies and workshops across the Commonwealth, Mass Poetry reaches thousands of people, young and old, with our innovative poetry programs.
In Spring 2020, Mass Poetry will become a key partner and an anchor tenant at the new Narrative Arts Center, founded by GrubStreet at 50 Liberty in Boston’s Seaport District. This pioneering initiative will transform 13,000-square feet of retail space into a bookstore, literary stage, workshop space, podcasting studio, and a literary hub for all voices.
Mass Poetry serves as a founding member organization of the Poetry Coalition–a national network of more than three-dozen poetry organizations–spearheaded by the American Academy of Poets. In addition, we are an equal opportunity employer committed to being a multicultural organization. Candidates from diverse backgrounds are encouraged to apply.
