Thursday Morning Poets @ The New York City Poetry Festival
Strangers before the pandemic, Thursday Morning Poets (TMP) first met at a Queens Public Library virtual workshop led by Queens Poet Laureate Maria Lisella, whose prompt-based workshop inspired them to continue on their own, forming TMP. Meeting each other in-person for the first time in this, their debut public appearance, these 10 women of TMP whose faces reflect NYC's cultural & ethnic diversity will read their original works in a variety of poetic styles, lifting their voices as first-time poets or as award-winning poets to tell stories of women's lived experiences. The 10 women readers include educators, mothers, journalists, a yoga instructor, & a 19-year-old Ukrainian student: Ana Denysenko, Beth Evans, Isabella Calisi-Wagner, Judy Trupin, Julie Forgione, Luvon Roberson, Megha Sood, Melva C. Lewis, Nicollette Barsamian. Maria Lisella, American Academy of Poets Fellow, to introduce readers. The performance will take place at the Algonquin Stage, Face mask or Vax Card required.
