Brevitas 10th Annual Festival of the Short Poem, Sun, 11/10 at 1 p.m.

Brevitas 10th Annual Festival of the Short Poem, Sun, 11/10 at 1 p.m. at The Bowery Poetry Club, 308 Bowery, NYC 10012

for travel info:

Poet-members Jim Pignetti and Steve Zeitlin (founder of City Lore) launched brevitas by inviting a variety of poets to share original, short poems (14 lines max) with each other via email on the 1st and 15th of each month. Now, a decade later, this community has grown to over 50 poets. The Festival of the Short Poem is their annual gathering− poems are projected and, books are signed, and literary antics ensue. Laughter, pith and meaning collide.

Co-hosts for this brevitas’ 10th Anniversary Festival are Tony-nominated stage and screen actor Paul Hecht, host of the popular poetry series at the Cornelia Street Cafe celebrating birthdays of historic, short-poem luminaries, and photographer, cartoonist, poet and Renaissance woman Flash Rosenberg.

Tickets: $10.00 (includes a copy of the accompanying printed anthology)
