The Boston Poetry Marathon is a poetry reading festival in which 100+ poets read their work, each for 8 minutes apiece. The festival has occurred for over 20 years (with a few breaks here and there). Readers come from far away or just down the street. The festival is open to the public. The event is free but donations are welcome and appreciated.
