Building Community through Poetry and the Arts
We promote poetry as a vital and integral presence within the lives of students, artists, and the community through our Robert Creeley Award, Helen Creeley Student Poetry Prize, and Student Broadside Project.
The Robert Creeley Award is presented each year to a renowned poet. The recipient gives a public reading, visits local schools, and selects books to add to the Acton Memorial Library’s collection..
The Helen Creeley Student Poetry Prize is awarded to a Massachusetts high school student each year.
The winner receives a monetary prize and the honor to open for the Robert Creeley Award readings.
