The brainchild of former U.S. Poet Laureate Robert Pinsky, The National Favorite Poem Project was launched in 1997 to celebrate the sheer pleasure of poetry with the public at large. Pinsky put out a call for favorite poems and received 18,000 responses from Americans of diverse regions, ages, and backgrounds. For the past fourteen years, the Creative Writing Class at Newburyport High School has produced the Favorite Poem Project of Greater Newburyport.
- Students will read and consider all entries, so the more entries we receive, the more poetry students will read!
