Poets House is turning to our community for guidance as we restructure. We invite you to share your thoughts with us here.
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 Eady 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.
Online programming has resumed with our Hard Hat Reading Series, featuring biweekly poetry readings by members of the Poets House community. Watch readings by Kimiko Hahn, José Olivarez, Monica Youn, Bob Holman, Tracy K. Smith, and many more.
