2014 Haiku Calendar:

I’m happy that my haiku:

   January mist
the snowplow

Twenty years and we are still burning, burning words, sounds, noise,
bringing our spirits to the stage…We are all stars, we will not be incinerated nor eclipsed, our voices in transit as we burn…we burn… we burn…

Come Celebrate 20 Years in the Light! Through the storms, through the fires, through the recession, despite the developers raising the rents and ousting people –the Alternative New Year’s Day Extravaganza continues! This annual event has become a tradition that gives voice to a culturally diverse group of performers of all ages. It is a multi-media event and includes musicians and artists of all kinds, in addition to the rambunctious, irreverent poets who have gathered together for the last two decades. Join us at the legendary Nuyorican Poets Café! Add your poetic language to the mix!

Clean out your bookshelves!
Paperback books accepted and will be donated to Books Through Bars

In addition to our performers this year we will intermittently feature a slideshow featuring the work of hundreds of visual artists who show at Sideshow Nation, the annual group show held early each year at Sideshow Gallery in Williamsburg.
