ABOUT THE POETRY PROJECT’S READING SERIES
While the boundaries between each of the Project’s reading series are permeable, in general, the Wednesday Reading Series features nationally/internationally recognized poets as well as those of local renown, while the Monday Reading Series serves as a forum for emerging poets. Mondays also contain the Talk Series, Open Readings and Workshop Readings. The Friday Reading Series provides space for poets and other artists whose work is interdisciplinary. Participation in all series is by invitation from the series Coordinator. While the series are curated, The Poetry Project does accept “pitches.” All queries and ideas may be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org and will be forwarded to the Coordinators. Coordinator appointments change every 2 years to ensure diversity of perspective. (more…)
The Project is currently seeking to diversify and grow its collegial, professional, and highly committed board of directors. This could be an ideal opportunity for an individual with previous board experience who is seeking to transition into a more arts-focused role or for someone with strong professional experience looking to apply their enthusiasm and expertise to our organization. Profiles that include expertise in technology, fundraising, real estate, marketing, public relations or a combination thereof are of particular interest at this juncture in the board’s development, though we would like to hear from all strong candidates. If you or someone appropriate you know might be interested, please feel free to contact the Director, Stacy Szymaszek at email@example.com.
The 2014-15 Emerge – Surface – Be Fellowship Application is now live! Application will be accepted through Sunday, August 31, 2014 at 11:59pm. Please email esbfellowship@poetryproject.
