Academy of American Poets: 2012 Poets Forum
Thursday, October 18, 2012 at 7:00 PM - Saturday, October 20, 2012 at 9:00 PM
New York, NY
As the new Executive Director of the Academy of American Poets, I want to personally invite you to our upcoming Poets Forum the weekend of October 18.
Over the past few months, we have provided you with glimpses of what this year's Poets Forum promises to be: an inspiring, uplifting, and thought-provoking series of events. More than 30 poets, including the Academy's esteemed Chancellors, will discuss contemporary poetry and share their poems. We'll hear about the Beat and New York School movements from Lyn Hejinian, Ron Padgett, Gary Snyder, and Anne Waldman. We'll walk in the footsteps of E.E. Cummings, Langston Hughes, Marianne Moore, and Walt Whitman on poet-led walking tours. And, Elizabeth Alexander will deliver a keynote on Lucille Clifton.
I hope you'll take a moment today to buy tickets to this very special gathering of poets. I look forward to meeting you soon!
