The Self Educating Poets Network is a DIY self-education group providing resources and meeting space to poets seeking a free education in community with others. It was founded on principles of activism from Occupy Boston’s Free School University (FSU) as well as the free spirit of poets who met from the Cantab Poetry Lounge and Boston Poetry Slam.
