Mission Statement


Maine Poetry Central is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit charged with promoting Maine poets and poetry.  To date, we’ve created The Portland Poet Laureate Program, The Minute With the Muse Video-Poem Series, and–in collaboration with Moon Pie Press–The Michael Macklin First Book Award for a poet in New England who is over forty and who is yet to publish a full-length collection of poems.  Thus far, too, we’ve been fortunate enough to receive two grants from The Maine Humanities Council.  If you would like to learn more about our organization’s projects or make a donation, please email me, dennis, at denniscamire@hotmail.com
