Brooklyn Poets Yawp feat. Dennis Nurkse

We kick off National Poetry Month with our Fourth Anniversary Yawp on Monday, April 10, at 61 Local. We're proud to announce that former Brooklyn Poet Laureate D. Nurkse will be in the house to lead the workshop. "We'll look briefly at two poems by Gwendolyn Brooks and Lucille Clifton for ways to write with a political dimension," Nurkse says, "and workshop members will write and share work in a humanistic environment."
