Diana Der Hovanessian, world- renowned poet and translator, is current director of the very active New England Poetry Club. If you live in New England, it is a must. It was founded in 1915 by Amy Lowell, Robert Frost and Conrad Aiken , runs readings at venues such as the stately Longfellow House, and gives prizes. I was lucky enough to win an Erika Mumford Prize recently. The organization sponsors programs for young people and owes its continuation to the devoted work of volunteers.
