Since 2005, Brownstone Poets has been inspiring poetry in Brooklyn. We strive to be a unique and diverse community, welcoming various literary styles and forms. We would like to thank this year’s sixty-nine reader-contributors, as well as our loyal attendees. Without their love and commitment, our reading series and this anthology would not have been possible.We’re honored to have the Himalayan poet Yuyutsu Sharma as our poet-in- residence and David Austell as this year’s guest poet.We mourn the passing of Gil Fagiani, who was a translator, essayist, short-story writer, poet, and friend, and have dedicated a section in his memory.This collection of poetry, infused with Brooklyn imagery, is our contribution to the vibrant spirit found in the Borough of Kings.
Planning on events at the Mulberry Street Library in Manhattan, the Brooklyn Public Library in Park Slope, etc. Stay tuned . . .
