Peterborough Poetry Project

Peterborough Poetry Project Board of Directors member Yvonne Gifford and founder Bill Chatfield photographed outside their home in Peterborough.

Seeing a need to promote poetry and literacy in the local area, New Hampshire and beyond, Peterborough resident and lifelong poetry lover Bill Chatfield created the Peterborough Poetry Project in January 2019.

Poetry, like all art, can mean many different things to many different people, but for Chatfield, poetry at its best has a unique ability to instill a deeper understanding of humanity and spur empathy for other people.
