(We’ll have more information on what relief funds will be benefitting soon. We’re just making sure we’re getting the money to where it’s needed most.)

I’m happy to announce the amazing line-up for the next COUPLET READING SERIES on October 26th (time TBA) which happens to be our 1-YEAR ANNIVERSARY.
(FB Invitation to Follow…)
It’s an all- male line-up this time around and it’s going to kind of be like Macho-Man by the Village People, which I think my bunk did a MTV skit to back in 1993 in Sleepaway Camp, but NOT. (Actually, not at all, but wouldn’t that be fun?)
Come out and hear The Poetry Society of New York’s installment at the legendary HOWL! Festival on Sunday, June 3rd. We’re featuring some our favorite NYC poets as a short preview for this summer’s New York City Poetry Festival on Governors Island!
