Calliope Poetry’s newest project, Wish You Were Here: Postcards from the Past, is a literary and artistic response to the Falmouth Public Library’s collection of historical postcards. A curated selection of brief prose and narrative poems and new art (photography, painting, fiber and ceramic art) will be on exhibit at Falmouth’s Museum on the Green Cultural Center in late September, 2023. Wish You Were Here: Postcards from the Past is supported, in part, by a grant from the Falmouth Cultural Council, the local agency of the Mass Cultural Council.
Initially a monthly poetry series, with winter craft workshops, at the West Falmouth Library (2007 – 2016), Calliope Poetry had a hiatus until it initiated a Cape and Islands anthology, From the Farther Shore: Discovering Cape Cod and the Islands Through Poetry (Bass River Press, 2021). In all of Calliope Poetry’s projects, our mission is: Appreciate Create Celebrate.
