Are you interested in learning more about how the WCPA board works together to support poetry and poetry events in central Massachusetts?  Have an idea for a poetry event and aren't sure how to get started?

Come to a board meeting!  A board meeting is a great way to meet the members of the WCPA who volunteer their time and talent to bring our traditional events, and new ideas to life.

The WCPA board meets on the first Wednesday of each month in our office at the Sprinkler Factory (38 Harlow Street, Worcester).  The meetings start at 7:00 pm and are open to the public.
