7/26/14 & 7/27/14: The New York City Poetry Festival
The New York City Poetry Festival showcases all of the different formats, aesthetics, and personalities of New York City reading series, small presses, and collectives, in one place at one time. This FREE festival intends to create branches between disparate poetry communities, and other artists and artisans, by bringing poetry out of the dark bars and universities and by placing it in the sun. The 4th Annual New York City Poetry Festival will include over 60 poetry organizations and 250 poets on its three main stages; a Vendor’s Village where local booksellers, artists and craft makers will sell their wares; healthy and delicious food truck options; a beer garden sponsored by The Brooklyn Brewery, poetry-inspired installation art throughout; the Ring of Daisies open mic; and last but not least, the Children’s Poetry Festival, complete with writing games and its own fourth, all-kids stage. Below is the reading schedule. Visit our website for more info: newyorkcitypoetryfestival.com.
