Solid-Sounds-Festival

The Poetry Foundation was honored to sponsor the WanderWord poetry program during this year’s SolidSoundFest at Mass MoCA. The images included here hopefully give you a feeling for the poetry, the art, the music and the amazing crowd who descended up North Adams, Massachusetts to hear, see and experience this unique event. 

The Lost in the Words Poetry Trail was a scavenger hunt audio tour featuring 12 poets. At each of the 12 trail stops, guests took out their phones, and plugged into a poem. 

Check out all of the “Lost in the Words” Poetry Trail poems:
