Meet Northampton’s New Poet Laureate, Patrick Donnelly

Local poet, literary translator and Smith College lecturer Patrick Donnelly has recently been appointed Northampton’s seventh Poet Laureate. During his two-year term, Donnelly plans to hold free public speaking workshops for writers, events for local literary translators and at least one community recitation of a “choral poem,” a choreographed and performed group poem. Donnelly is also planning a benefit reading for A Positive Place, formerly AIDS CARE/ Hampshire County.
