This project describes Worcester-area poets with the intent to expand upon and publicize the Archives' current holdings of Worcester poets. We delved into the rare book trade and examined the poets' lives by reading primary and secondary works and conducting interviews. We adapted and updated the existing web publication on Worcester Authors to also include the Worcester Poets. We also investigated the holdings of the Gordon Library and made recommendations to the Archives Department on the acquisition of appropriate works to expand the collection.
