Thursday Morning Poets @ 100 Thousand Poets for Change
Following their debut in-person appearance at this year's New York City Poetry Festival on Governors Island, the multicultural all-female Thursday Morning Poets (TMP) collective will raise their voices for social change as part of the 10thannual global demonstration led by 100 Thousand Poets for Change (100tpc.org) joining poets, musicians, and artists worldwide, from many languages, cultures, geographical regions, ethnicities, creeds, beliefs, and religious affiliation, in the call for lasting social, political, & environmental change. Thursday Morning Poets--who represent NYC's broad cultural and ethnic diversity -go global, drawing on their unique lived experiences in reading of their original works of poetry in-concert with thousands of other poets from around the world to support peace,justice, and sustainability. TMP first met in an on-line prompt-based poetry workshop led by Queens Poet Laureate and Academy of American Poets Fellow Maria Lisella, in January 2021.Wheelchair accessible Chairs not available; bring seating or blankets For additional information, contact Julie Forgione [email protected] / 917-749-1963
