The Poetry of Places in Philly
May 19 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
2017 Philly Loves Poetry Interview and Readings Series on PhillyCAM
Regarding Poetry in Philly someone wrote: “If Philadelphia and environs were a garden of poetry, it would be quite a garden. It’d be huge. This is a poetry town which is lush and fertile.” There are over 50 organizations that promote poetry in the Philadelphia area-poetry readings, workshops; special events, as well as publish poetry journals and books of poems. They represent every poetry form, every ethnic background, every age, gender, and community. This series will consist of a panel of guest poets discussing the opportunities which their group or organization provides for poetry in Philly. The program will also focus on the wide variety of themes and issues which influence the creation of poetry. The program is broadcast live on the first Tuesday of each month with Charles S. Carr as host. It is free and open to everyone. Please join us in the studio for this live broadcast.
