Per Neil Silberblatt:
“Join us at this gorgeous and historic venue in Park Slope, Brooklyn for an afternoon of exceptional poetry.

There will also be an “open mic” for those wishing to share their work (1 poem or 5 minutes, whichever is less).

Located just around the corner from the Grand Army Plaza 2/3 subway stop, the Montauk Club is easily accessible by public transportation [2, 3, Q, F] or car. And it’s free, with a brief tour usually included at the conclusion of the reading. To reserve your spot for the open mic, please contact Harvey Soss at artfuldodgerspoetry@gmail.com or at poetsoss@gmail.com; additional spots will be available on the performance date on a first come first served basis as time permits.”
