Astor Poetry Jam

Astor Place celebrates National Poetry Month with the free inaugural Astor Poetry Jam, a festival of poetry, featuring live poetry slams and readings, poetry writing workshops led by 'Professor Poets' from Bowery Poetry Club, and a pop-up gallery of poems and stories in which to immerse yourself. In partnership with the Academy of American Poets and Bowery Poetry Club, the Astor Poetry Jam brings the joy of poetry to Astor Place with exciting interactive and poetic experiences: live readings, poetry workshops, a pop-up gallery, and more. The full lineup of readers will be announced in the coming weeks.
