Please join us for the next reading of Triangle Quarterly--a series dedicated to exploring diverse styles and genres of poetry, curated and hosted by Anton Yakovlev.

Each reading features 3 poets writing in distinctly different modes. After the readings the 3 poets assemble onstage for a Q&A and a discussion where they react to each other's work!
