Some Links of Interest
  Here are some links to poetry-related websites. This list consists of sites I have collected over the years and includes poetry venues and organizations local to the Worcester area as well as general sites for poetry information and media. It is in no way exhaustive and does not represent anything except a junk box collection of sites that I find of use and interest. Like pretty much everything in my life, it is also a work-in-progress.

Links to video recordings of the monthly lunch poetry readings held on the Berkley campus. The series, directed by Robert Hass, features a remarkable array of voices and the recordings are of particularly good quality.
