9th Annual Brevitas Festival of the Short Poem

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
For further and deeper information contact: Richard Storm, rdstorm@nyc.rr.com
The 9th Annual brevitas Festival of the Short Poem
Sunday, November 11, 2012
2:30 – 5:30 pm
POETS HOUSE
10 River Terrace (at Murray Street)
——————————————
The Stars
One night I spoke
to the stars.
“Write a poem,”
they said.
“What kind of
poem?” I asked.
“Doesn’t matter.
Just make it short.”
            ~ Sparrow
           (poet-member, brevitas)
Poets House is hosting the 9th Annual brevitas Festival of the Short Poem on Sunday November 11, 2012 from 2:30 – 5:30 pm.
Poet-members Jim Pignetti and Steve Zeitlin (founder of City Lore) launched brevitas by inviting a variety of dedicated poets to share original, short poems (14 lines max) with each other via email on the 1st and 15th of each month. Now ten years later, this community has grown to nearly 40 poets who offer individual, constructive feedback to each other’s works. This experiment has nurtured the collection of over 200 short poems for the anthology “2012 brevitas 9” that will be celebrated and given to everyone who attends the Festival. Poems will be projected and performed by each poet. Books will be signed. Literary antics will entertain. Laughter, pith and meaning will collide.
Poets in the audience will have an opportunity to sign-up for the Short Poem Open Mic (14 lines max) hosted by Bob Holman, international spoken-word poetry guru and founder of The Bowery Poetry Club).
Memorial tributes will honor our departed poet-members Iris Berman and Sue Machlin.
“Because of brevitas,” poet-member Richard Storm observed, “everything is a potential poem and everyone is a potential poet.  Because of brevitas, poetry waits for me…. On the next block, around the corner, on every stranger’s face.”
brevitas members are a feisty mixture of well-known, emerging, and irrepressible artists and poets, including program hosts Angelo Verga (Spoken Word Curator for The Cornelia Street Café) and Flash Rosenberg (artist in residence for LIVE from the New York Public Library). Other poet-members include New Yorker poet Sparrow, Poet Laureate of Jones Street Sanford Fraser, Mobius editor Juanita Torrence-Thompson, First Literary Review-East editors Cindy Hochman and Karen Neuberg, co-founder of the William Carlos Williams Poetry Cooperative John J. Trause, along with a lively roster of accomplished wordsmiths including Dorothy Freidman August, Susan Gerardi Bello, Claudia Carlson, Patricia Carragon, Jan Garden Castro, Esther Cohen, Gil Fagiani, Christian Garaud, Leigh Harrison, Bob Heman, Eileen Hennessy, Evie Ivy, Judy Kamilhor, Andrew Kaufman, Maria Lisella, Tsaurah Litzky, Georgia Luna, James McMenamin, Katrinka Moore, Leslie Prosterman, Dorothea Hutton Scher, Zev Shanken, Ed Smith, Esther K. Smith, Nathan A. Versace, Carolyn Wells, and Jeffrey Cyphers Wright. 
$10 admission includes a copy of the brevitas anthology of short poems, 2012 brevitas 9.
9th Annual brevitas Festival of the Short Poem
