Following their debut in-person appearance at this year's New York City Poetry Festival on Governors Island, the multicultural all-female Thursday Morning Poets (TMP) collective will raise their voices virtually for social change as part of the 10th annual global demonstration led by 100 Thousand Poets for Change (100tpc.org) on Friday, September 24 at 6PM on Zoom.
TMP will be joining poets, musicians, and artists worldwide, from many languages, cultures, geographical regions, ethnicities, creeds, beliefs, and religious affiliation, in the call for lasting social, political, & environmental change. Thursday Morning Poets--who represent NYC's broad cultural and ethnic diversity -go global, drawing on their unique lived experiences in reading of their original works of poetry in-concert with thousands of other poets from around the world to support peace, justice, and sustainability. TMP first met in an on-line prompt-based poetry workshop led by Queens Poet Laureate and Academy of American Poets Fellow Maria Lisella, in January 2021.
Readers include: Ana Denysenko, Beth Evans, Isabella Calisi-Wagner, Judy Trupin, Julie Forgione, Laura Pantoja, Luvon Roberson, Megha Sood, Melva C. Lewis, Maria Lisella, Nicollette Barsamian.
