Bowery Poetry, 308 Bowery, NYC (map)

A co-production with the Academy of American Poets. The series, often called “where the Pulitzer Prize meets the poetry slam,” is like no other poetry reading series anywhere. Each month, for over 10 years, two different poets, one who writes primarily for the page and another who is more performance oriented, take the stage together and read back and forth, poem for poem. The evening is not a competition in any way. Rather it's a conversation in verse, with the two poets alternating, reading one poem each.
