[As stewards of this space, we take seriously the need for it be safe, inclusive, and communitybuilding.]

We will feature socially-engaged poets and then open the mic to folks who need to be heard.

We will be live streaming and recording the event.

Hard start at 5PM, arrive early to commune and sign up for the limited open mic slots.

We are calling this reading, “DAY ONE” because it will be “Day One” of many where we will have to commune, resist, and be heard. Artists, writers, and poets of this nation are letting it be known that we are prepared to voice the collective dissent each and every one of the next 1,460 days, if that’s what is needed.

Join us as we collectively process and map out the next four years.

This program is made possible through the Poets House Literary Partners Program.

Admission Free and Open to the Public Location Kray Hall Sponsored By Poets House
