A much-loved writing community tradition is returning to the Boston area again in 2018. The Boston Poetry Marathon will be held August 10th – 12th, at Outpost 186 in Cambridge’s Inman Square. Over three days, 100+ local and out-of-town poets will read and perform their poems.

The Marathon presents a diverse range of poetry styles; academics, slam poets, students from local creative writing programs, and everyone in between rub elbows during approximately 20 hours of poetry programming. Each poet is given a brief timeslot to share their work with the audience. Attendance is free (donations accepted), and all ages are welcome.

Certain books were “banned in Boston” at least as far back as 1651, when one William Pynchon wrote a book criticizing Puritanism.
