Maureen Owen & Susie Timmons

Maureen Owen and Susie Timmons are two very crucial reasons why we have a Poetry Project at all. These are two poets who recognize the fundamentally collaborative, social, and care-based heart of poetry, and it’s from this heart that they write their poems.

Featuring guest introductions by Patricia Spears Jones and Eileen Myles


We hope you can join us at 7:00PM for a reception before the event. The reading will begin at 8:00PM.


This in-person event will also be livestreamed via The Poetry Project's YouTube. Livestream captions will be available via a StreamText link or the CC button on YouTube's player.


This event is presented in partnership with The Poetry Coalition's spring 2023 program, “and so much lost you’d think / beauty had left a lesson: Poetry & Grief” a coalitional program effort supported by a major grant to The Academy of American Poets from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
