Thirteen undergraduate poets from Massachusetts' public universities have been selected to participate in the 2015 Salem Poetry Seminar. These young poets are artists-in-residence for one week, talking and writing poetry with each other and with accomplished faculty. The student poets selected for the 2015 seminar are:
Salem State students Robert Auld, Taylor Botticelli and Victoria Nicolau; Westfield State students Woody Woodger, Robin Parsons and Andrew Mansfield; UMass Boston students Amy Gaeta and Cady Vishniac, Bridgewater State student Elizabeth Meaghan Tobin, Framingham State student Julie Fabbo, UMass Lowell student Kayleigh Turgeon, and UMass Amherst student Mallory Braun.

The seminar includes public readings by the seminar participants on June 3 and 4, a Poetry Seminar Alumni Reading on June 5 and headliner poet Jill McDonough on June 6. All readings are free and take place at the Salem Athenaeum, 337 Essex Street.
