Poetry Express on WERU

Community Radio

Tune in every Thursday at 8:30am

We’ve partnered with WERU Community Radio to broadcast recordings of selected Poetry Express readings!  Tune in every Thursday morning at 8:30 am or visit the station’s archives to hear past airings.

Poetry Express is a collaborative program with the Maine State Library, bringing Maine poetry and poets to communities. We partner with a local public library and a local poet. Maine State Library provides curated resources. Community members select Maine poems, learn to perform those poems in a workshop and host a community poetry reading and conversation event.
