Mountain Poets Society
This will be the 18th year of Poets on the Porch where more than 100 poets have read over the years, including Maine Poet Laureate Baron Wormser, Should Be Poet Laureate Gary Lawless, Badass Writer Liz Peavey, Haiku King Arizona Zipper, and Former Portland Poet Laureate Martin Steingesser
This year Norway's self-proclaimed Poet Laureate, Lisa Moore, will write a one-of-a-kind poem on demand on a typewriter for anyone who wants one. After a short discussion about what you'd like, Lisa will pound out a poem in about 10 minutes. The poems make great gifts. All donations to the jar will benefit the NAMF.
Mountain Poets will also attempt setting a Guinness World Book record for the most people reciting a poem simultaneously. The record is 46,660, set in Thailand in 2014.
