Brownstone Poets has been inspiring poetry in Brooklyn since 2005. We strive to be unique and diverse, and we welcome a multitude of styles and forms. We would like to thank this year’s sixty-four reader-contributors listed below, as well as our loyal attendees. Without their love for, and dedication to, our reading series, this anthology would not have been possible.

We are proud to have the Himalayan poet Yuyutsu RD Sharma as our poet in residence. We would also like to honor this year’s guest poet, Bruce Weber, and pay tribute to our fellow poets Bill Pyles and Frank Simone, who recently passed away.



This collection of poetry, infused with Brooklyn imagery, is our contribution to the vibrant creative spirit in the borough of Kings.


Planning on the Second Event at the Brooklyn Public Library in Park Slope for September. Stay tuned . . . 



Dear Contributors:

you can read at both events if you like. You can read either from the anthology or both. At Park Plaza Restaurant, you can read for five minutes.  Remember, when we get the dates for the library, time must be kept to three minutes or less. For those contributors who have never rec'd their comp copy, you can pick it up at any Brownstone Poets reading, etc. 

Additional books on sale at the readings for $12


You can order additional books
