Regarding Schedule Change for Brownstone Poets







Dear Poets and Friends,

Regarding a schedule change for Brownstone Poets:


This reading series is usually held on first Saturdays, except during the holidays and July at Park Plaza Restaurant in Brooklyn Heights. But as of August 2017, the reading series will be held on the fourth Saturday of the month at Park Plaza Restaurant at the same time (2:30 p.m.) unless it conflicts with a holiday. Therefore, whenever there is a holiday conflict, the reading will be held on the third Saturday instead. Brownstone Poets will continue its July hiatus. Brownstone Poets will no longer have readings in December, allowing time out for the holidays and for an earlier start on the 2018 anthology. 

I will notify the featured poets for August through November on the date changes:





Yours in Poetry,

Patricia Carragon
Curator, Editor-In-Chief
Brownstone Poets
