Brooklyn Poets Yawp with Kyle Liang

Join us on Monday, October 10, for our next Yawp at 144 Montague Street! New Brooklyn Poets teacher Kyle Liang will lead a workshop on honoring our pasts, drawn from his weekly drop-in class Poetry, Road Maps and Preservation. We‘ll write poems that remember what is easily forgotten, recover and record the details of our lives, and claim what no one can take from us—our stories, because our stories deserve to survive us.

Doors will open at 6:00 PM. The generative writing workshop will begin at 6:30. After a 15-minute break, the open mic will begin at 7:45 PM.

Advance online ticket sales end at noon on the day of the event. After that, tickets for in-person attendance can be purchased at the door; tickets for virtual attendance will no longer be available. Participants are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance, as there is limited capacity.

Each reader for the open mic reads one poem of 3 minutes max. Participants can purchase one of ten tickets in advance to reserve an open mic spot. Once those tickets sell out, all other participants who’d like to read for the open mic can purchase a ticket to sign up at the door on a first-come, first-serve basis. We usually have time for about 20–24 readers.
