The Garden of Words came into existence about 20 years ago. Like all websites of a certain age, it has grown and evolved over time. Most content on the site now deals with poetry, books, and Boston’s thriving literary scene, with occasional forays into personal essays, politics, and queer experience. You know — for kids.
