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 fifty-two 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 would also like to honor this year’s guest poet, Evie Ivy, and pay tribute to our fellow poets, Cynthia Toronto and Michael Walsh, who passed away this past year.
This collection of poetry, infused with Brooklyn imagery, is our contribution to the vibrant creative spirit in the Borough of Kings.
Dear contributors, you can read at both events if you like. You can read either from the anthology or both. Remember, time is more restrictive at the library and most keep it to three minutes or less. For those contributors who have never rec’d their comp copy, you can pick it up at the reading.
