The Palace Poetry Group is an open group whose mission is to help poets find their poetic voices and in so doing encourage each other. Poets and all who appreciate poetry are welcome to attend.
Join the Palace Poetry Group for a poetry reading by a featured speaker every month followed by an open mic.
October's featured poet is Barbara Crooker.
Barbara Crooker is a poetry editor for Italian-Americana, and author of nine full-length books of poetry, with Some Glad Morning coming out in the Pitt Poetry Series in 2019. Her awards include the WB Yeats Society of New York Award, the Thomas Merton Poetry of the Sacred Award, and three Pennsylvania Council on the Arts Creative Writing Fellowships. Her work appears in a wide variety of literary journals and anthologies and has been read on the ABC, the BBC, The Writer’s Almanac, and featured on Ted Kooser's American Life in Poetry.
This event is funded in part by Poets & Writers with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
