  1. It is free, open mic event which will be telecasted to all 5 boros of NYC and Newark, NJ. The poems which match the event will get priority. You can join our group for free and it is open for all types of poets.

  2. Being a part of this poetry group has been very refreshing to me. I enjoy hearing other poets and their hearts cry out for change.
