Blacksmith House Poetry Series: Virtual Readings

Founded in 1973, the award-winning Blacksmith House Poetry Series brings established and emerging writers of poetry and fiction to Harvard Square. We hold readings at the Blacksmith House at 56 Brattle Street, site of the village smithy and spreading chestnut tree of Longfellow’s 1839 poem "The Village Blacksmith."

Fall 2020 readings will take place virtually on Zoom on Mondays at 7pm. Please register in advance. The Zoom meeting link, meeting ID, and password will be included in your registration confirmation email. If you do not receive the confirmation email, please contact us at 617-547-6789 ext. 1.
