Though currently closed, Poets House will reopen in late 2022.

We are delighted to welcome acclaimed poet, educator, and Cave Canem co-founder Cornelius Eady on board as our Interim Director. Eady leads us in re-envisioning Poets House with DEIA principles always at its core and in launching a listening campaign to draw guidance from our community to inform our plans for a sustainable future.

Meet our new Interim Director and learn about our plans for Poets House’s future in his introductory letter, with updates to follow as we enter this transformative new era in the life of Poets House.

Tune into our Hard Hat Reading Series to watch poets perform their favorite poems from our library, kicking off with Monica Youn and with readings by Cornelius Eady and others to follow.

And follow along on our Under Construction blog for updates on our rebuilding after flooding in August 2021.
