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. Our reading series is expanding via Zoom, reaching out to new voices  across the U.S. and the world.  

We would like to thank this year’s 43 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 Yuko Otomo as this year’s guest poet.

This collection of poetry, infused with Brooklyn imagery, is our contribution to the vibrant spirit found in the Borough of Kings.

We are happy to announce the nomination of 6 poets from the Brownstone Poets 2021 Anthology for a Pushcart Prize. Winners will be announced next year and published in the next edition of the Pushcart Prize anthology, edited by Bill Henderson with the Pushcart Prize Editors.

Congratulations to:

Carrrie Magness Radna, Emira Mitre Kokomani, Ernest Woodley, Jeff Cottrill, Megha Sood, Ron Bremner
