Take Heart Poetry Archive

The Maine State Library has partnered with the State's Poet Laureate, Wesley McNair, and the Maine Writers & Publishers Alliance in the initiative, Take Heart: A Conversation in Poetry.

Each week McNair offer one previously published poem by a Maine poet. McNair will select each poem and write a brief introduction about the poet's background and connection to Maine, and the history, context, or themes of the poem. A full archive of those weekly poems is posted below.
