Past Program: May 15, 2022 | 2pm ET | In-Person | Free
Join NYC Poets Afloat for their third annual group poetry reading aboard our tall ship Wavertree on Sunday, May 15, 2022 at 2pm. Nine poets have spent time in micro-residencies aboard ships in New York Harbor, musing and writing poetry while afloat. Now, they come together to share their poetry in a group reading on the deck of Wavertree.
The event is FREE, and advance registration is required.
