“The sexiest literary events in New York” – Time Out New York, August 27th, 2014, Tiffany Gilbert

The Poetry Society of New York, founded in 2011, is a New York-based arts organization that strives to unite the community of poetry makers with the community of appreciators in new and innovative ways. Its mission is three-fold: to create new models for the presentation of poetry, to redefine poetry’s position in the culture-at-large, and to bring the works of New York City poets to the world. Its free, outdoor festival on Governors Island brings together the various formats, aesthetics, and personalities of New York City reading series, small presses, and collectives in one place, at one time.
