Branding and Publicity

After you’ve been awarded a Poetry Express event, we strongly encourage you to let your community know with an announcement online—on social media, in your e-newsletter, on your website, etc. Remember to tag us @mainehumanities

When dates and details are confirmed, your MHC Point Person will provide you with a branded flyer and web image specific to your Poetry Express event(s). We ask that you do not alter the provided MHC branded images. For options that better meet your needs, please contact our Communications Coordinator.

If it’s your organization’s policy to include your logo on publicity materials, you are welcome to create your own include the Maine Humanities Council Logo.


We work closely with coordinators, performers, and poets in order to create every Poetry Express event. There are a lot of moving parts in this program—and it is important to us that the process of working with us and with your community go well!  Your reflection on the whole process helps us understand what’s most useful and supportive and what works less well, so that we can keep this program vital.
