Boiler House Poets Collective

Who we are and how we came to be:

In November, 2015, nine poets met at MASS MoCA in North Adams, Massachusetts, for a workshop-in-residency week, a collaboration between Assets for Artists and Tupelo Press founder Jeffrey Levine. We did a reading in the Boiler House at the museum and the Boiler House Poets Collective was born! Because we bonded so strongly with each other and with The Studios at MASS MoCA, we have returned nearly every year since for a reunion residency. The pandemic cancelled our 2020 residency, but we returned to The Studios in Fall 2021.
