Literary Partners Program: The Means of Protection: 14 Poems, Many Voices

Nov 7, 2019 | 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Security—it’s something we all seek. But we also know that finding true safety requires taking risks along the way. How does it feel to live this paradox? These poems offer some clues, as does the format of my readings. I invite audience members to perform my work, standing up and reading unknown words out loud to strangers. Will taking the risk bring its own reward? So far, at readings in other cities, audiences have created sturdy sanctuaries using those most powerful of tools: rhythmic words bravely spoken.

New Orleanian Amy Clipp shares her Means of Protection poems at Poets House. For more information, see and @amyclippwriting.

This event is made possible through Poets House’s Literary Partners Program. Poets House is an ADA accessible facility.
