From the Fishouse is an IRS-registered non-profit that promotes the oral tradition of poetry. The free online audio archive showcases emerging poets (defined for this purpose as poets with fewer than two published books of poetry at the time of submission) reading their own poems, as well as answering questions about poetry and the writing process.
The Fishouse's mission is to use online technology and other media to provide the public with greater access to the voices of emerging poets, and to provide an educational resource to students and teachers of contemporary poetry.
Follow Fishouse on Twitter and join on Facebook for updates as additional live readings are edited and posted. Videos of Fishouse readings are continually added to our YouTube channel.
From the Fishouse takes its name, and the spelling of "Fishouse," from the writing cabin of the late Lawrence Sargent Hall. Hall renovated the former codfish-drying shack and wrote in the space for 50 years.

Ed note: maybe an idea for the Poets & Writers Picnic ~ archive sound and video records of picnic performances. A Picnic Facebook presence is underway but not yet published
