Would you like to host me for a reading or have me as a featured speaker/reader at an event? Or perhaps looking for someone to come to talk to a group or a retreat on poetry & spirituality, exploration of the Bible through poetry, or poetry and purity culture? If you’d like to be in touch about a future event or reading, please email me at contact@meganmcdermottpoet.com I would love to hear from you!

Recently, I’ve given readings at Trident Booksellers in Boston, Mass. (with other Game Over Books poets); Happier Valley Comedy in Hadley, Mass.; and St. John’s Episcopal Church in Charlestown, Mass. I have been a featured reader at Northampton Poetry Open Mic and First Fridays Open Mic – Jamaica Plain and have given a number of presentations on topics related to poetry & faith. Here’s an online presentation I gave for Beacon Hills Friends House, an intentional Quaker community in Boston, on “Filling the Gaps: Poetry as an Exploration of Spiritual Silence.”
