The 43rd Annual New Year’s Day Marathon Benefit Reading

We have always envisioned the poet-in-society as one who restores meaning to language. We believe a large part of the fight against demagoguery and hate occurs on the premises of language. Please join us at our largest fundraiser and community-building (and sustaining) event of the year as 150 poets and artists cast and catalyze our voices!
