History

Page Meets Stage: where the Pulitzer Prize meets the Poetry Slam

We are a monthly poetry series that pairs more page-oriented, academic poets with poets who come from a more spoken-word or performative background. Both poets are on stage at the same time and read back and forth, poem for poem, sometimes answering each other, poem for poem, and other times taking the poetic conversation in a different direction.

Come the autumn, pairings will take place on the fourth Sunday of every (non-summer) month. Admission is $12 at the door, but $10 if purchased in advance through Eventbrite. The series is currently hosted by The Bowery Poetry Club (308 Bowery). SUBWAY: F to Second Ave./6 to Bleecker.
