The Amherst Poetry Festival is a free event that celebrates the poetic legacy of Emily Dickinson and the contemporary creativity of the Pioneer Valley and beyond.
Your support makes the Amherst Poetry Festival possible! Donations of $10 or more will receive a Festival button. Donations of $35 or more will receive a Festival button and a t-shirt! Online donations ahead of the Festival will also allow Festival supporters exclusive access to bypass the registration line. (Unfortunately at this time, we are unable to mail t-shirts.)
