Great American Poetry Crawl: New Haven

The Institute Library

The Institute Library, 847 Chapel Street
New Haven, CT 06510

Poet and educator Brendan Walsh brings his summer poetry tour to The Poetry Institute for an evening of stirring literary work and performance! 'Living Things: The Great American Poetry Crawl,' sponsored by Sutra Press, is harnessing the fellowship of writing by connecting to independent literary communities up and down the East Coast. This reading tour stretches from Florida to Rhode Island; Walsh is also conducting interviews with local poets in each city, creating a video series that illustrates the reciprocal relationship between poetry and place. Every third Thursday, New Haven's Poetry Institute celebrates an eclectic mix of poetic voices. The public is invited to bring something to share for the open mic while enjoying fellowship and refreshments in a casual setting. Open mic sign-up begins at 6:30pm; reading begins at 7:00pm. Join us for a reading in exploration of the joy, contradiction, heartache and wonder of being!
