COVEN PRESS EVENTS
Coven Press is a loose organization of people who collaborate to organize events and publications to spread great poetry. Anyone who shares this ethos and self-identifies as part of this group is "coven." Consequently, the events listed below are not all of the events that Coven has organized or participated in, only the ones that I myself have organized or participated in.
