Poetry Ink is an open, festive, participatory community event. Please invite your friends and feel free to pass this information along to any other poets & writers that you think might be interested in participating.
Nowhere else in Philly do we get such a wonderful mix of people, voices, and generations. It is an experience in the varieties of personalities as much as in poetry and poetics – everything from uplift to satire, from political protest to personal sorrow, love poems and tirades, transgression and decorum, the outrageous and the outraged, ranters and restrained formalists, street and academy, performance poets and shy ladies barely audible – pretty much the human spectrum.
