Tweetspeak Poetry is planning a New York City Meetup this spring!
So many details to come. And arrangements to be made.
We just want to give you a heads up that we’re planning a New York City Meetup on April 22-23rd, with an evening event at International Arts Movement on the 23rd, including readings from some of our team and authors, as well as music from the beautiful Brooke Campbell.
Costs still to be determined. As are hotel accommodations. And we’ll be thinking about what kinds of fun things to do during the rest of the time together. April 23rd evening event limited to 50 people.
Can’t wait to see you there if you can make it!
Tell me a poem, a story
of a favored poet or poem,
one who changed your life,
your mind, opened up
possibilities, or made you
feel secure as your anchors,
your moorings, were removed.
Speak to me of your need;
describe the expectations
(are they great ones?), explain
how we soar together, toward
the sun, if not the moon,
tell me how I become
part of your larger self.
—Glynn Young, from the book Poetry at Work
