The 19 th Annual Brevitas Festival of the Short Poem

I will be reading virtually:

The 19th Annual Brevitas Festival of the Short Poem
HYBRID Event featuring poets LIVE & VIRTUALLY
Sunday, November 6, 2022 • 1:30 – 4:30 pm
The Bowery Poetry Club (aka Duane Park)

308 Bowery (between Bleecker & Houston), New York, NY 10012

Poet-members Jim Pignetti and Steve Zeitlin (founder of City Lore) launched Brevitas when they invited a small circle of poet-friends to email original, short poems (14 lines max) to each other on the 1 st and 15 th of each month. Now in its nineteenth year, this community has grown to over 50 poets, and a dynamic incubator of new work. This annual festival is a performance plus book party for the release of the 2022 Brevitas 19 Anthology of the Short Poem featuring a selection of each member-poet’s selections from the year’s exchange. Flash Rosenberg will host. Poems will be projected. Words will gush with pith, piety, and playfulness. Books will be signed.
